Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant, Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, has declared that she has no intentions of ever going back to ODM or CORD in the event that she loses in the Jubilee nominations.
Bishop Wanjiru was speaking at the Regional Recognition Awards on Monday, where she was honoured for her contribution in the logistics and shipping sector.
“I would not entertain the thought of going back to ODM or Cord, even after working with them before. My principles do not allow that,” she said as quoted by Nation.
Bishop Wanjiru hit out at those opposed to Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa’s bid for the Nairobi governor’s seat, saying City residents are tired of non-performers and want transparent, accountable and honest leadership.
“Citizens are tired of non-performers. We want leaders with an open door policy, leaders who can be reached when needed and with a track record and have proven themselves,” said Wanjiru.
She added that Nairobi needs a mother as its leader.
“Women want their own and this is the time. Nairobi needs a mother. Even men have realised this and want women to be leaders and are ready to support them,” she said.
Bishop Wanjiru added that she is working with CS Wamalwa and the two are yet to decide on who would be the flag bearer and the running mate.
“My brother Eugene Wamalwa and I are working as one. We have not decided who will be the flag bearer for [Jubilee], but after the nomination the one who will lose will be the running mate [of] the winner. This is a demonstration of our unity,” said Wanjiru.
