Ms Waiguru added: “After failing to fix me in the NYS scandal, the Opposition is spreading propaganda that I have been barred from contesting the gubernatorial seat.

“The Opposition will not succeed in its evil schemes.”

Accompanied by her running mate, Mr Peter Ndambiri, the former CS however said she had forgiven the Opposition.

“The Bible tells us to forgive our enemies,” she said. “I therefore take this opportunity to forgive the Opposition, which even kept on pushing that I be probed and prosecuted.”

She asked the residents to ignore propaganda and  vote for her in August polls.

Mr Ndambiri exuded confidence that they would triumph, saying: “We are aggressively wooing voters and the response is good everywhere. “We shall succeed.”

Former Mwea Member of Parliament Alfred Nderitu expressed his support for Ms Waiguru and promised to campaign for her.
