Martha Karua was on Thursday left with an egg on her face after she prematurely congratulated Wangui Ngirici.
Karua had taken to her Twitter account to congratulate Ngirici for defeating Waiguru.
“Congrats Wangui Ngirici. Your win is of great significance,” Karua said.
This was however way before the final tally for the Kirinyaga Governor seat was announced.
When the final tally was announced, Waiguru was declared winner by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
Waiguru managed to garner a total of 112,932 votes against her closest rival Ngirici who gained 104,980 votes.
