The 70-year-old woman said the politicians took advantage of her situation to lure poor electorates to vote for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party.
The woman said she was disappointed after Kenya Kwanza failed to invite her to the inauguration ceremony of President Ruto.
According to her narration, those she used to dine with had refused to pick up her calls after they got to power.
