Bishop Wanjiru has broken her silence after Sakaja quit the Nairobi governor race for the senatorial bid
She said that Team Nairobi, an outfit made up of MPs and Jubilee aspirants against the candidacy of Peter Kenneth was supportive of Sakaja’s move
Reactions have been fast and furious following a surprise move by nominated MP Johnson Sakaja to drop his bid for the Nairobi governor seat.
Sakaja has presented his nomination papers for the Nairobi senatorial seat instead.
At the same time, Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru has also reportedly dropped out of the Nairobi race and will instead defend his parliamentary seat in August 8, 2017.
Now former Starehe MP Bishop Margaret Wanjiru who is also vying for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat on a Jubilee party ticket has reacted following Sakaja’s new political move.
Wanjiru has declared she is still on the race to remove incumbent Evans Kidero.
She added that Team Nairobi, an outfit made up of MPs and Jubilee aspirants against the candidacy of Peter Kenneth was supportive of Sakaja’s move.
According to the Bishop, TeamNairobi/Sonko’s Camp had earlier agreed that Sakaja goes for the Senate seat as they work on the rest of the re-alignment that will face the Peter Kenneth’s camp in the Jubilee party primaries.
