I Will Be Trampled Grass, Esther Passaris Says as She Drops Out of Nairobi Governor’s Race

March 31, 2017

Businesswoman Esther Muthoni Passaris has dropped her ambitions for the Nairobi Governor’s seat in the upcoming August polls.

The Adopt a Light chief executive on Thursday said her candidature for the seat is “proving unrealistic for 2017” because of many reasons.

One of the reasons is believed to because her efforts to vie for the Nairobi seat on her Harambee Party ticket were thwarted after the Registrar of Parties declined to register the party.

She joins Nominated Member of Parliament Johnson Sakaja who has since dropped out of the Nairobi governor race and turned his parliamentary ambitions to the senate seat.

Ms Passaris added that she would be trampled in the race as Nairobi politics has been caught up in a show of might and tribalism.

She is, however, weighing on seeking a different position and invited twitter users in Nairobi to advise on which seat she should vie for.

She noted that Embakasi is her political home and would vie for any of the five constituencies should she run as MP.
