Nairobi - Bishop Margret Wanjiru has referred to Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero as an old man as she eyes the Capital City's gubernatorial seat in the 2017 elections.
Wanjiru made the remark Friday during a rally in which she also urged the youth to stay away from illicit brews for their own good.
Wanjiru said that Kidero had let residents of Nairobi down with his leadership and said that if voted for, she would ensure that life changes for the capital city.
" I think we have to say that enough is enough and that the leadership we have had has let us down in this great city of ours, she said in Nairobi.
She went as far as referring to Kidero as an old timer who was lost for ideas in running the city and urged residents to look elsewhere.
" We cannot let the old man come back again. We need change and I am the change the city is calling for," she said to large cheers.
She also warned young men to stop drinking all the time and focus on their families.
" Young men, you should know that when you consume illicit brew you damage your bodies and cannot make children. We women want children, but if you drink you are forcing women to go look for them elsewhere," she stated.
Dressed in full Jubilee Alliance Part JAP regalia she confirmed she would vie for the 2017 election under the party's banner.
" I am in JAP to stay, a party for the people and a party of progression," she added.
Wanjiru will thus face off with her former party ODM of which she failed to make an impact with in the 2013 elections after her University Degree was rejected, thus costing her the chance to vie for Governor, which required a University degree.
After completing her degree last year, she decamped to JAP.
