Nairobi - A former MP who quit ODM for Jubilee is set to quit the party just a few months after officially joining.
Margaret Wanjiru the former Starehe MP is set to quit the Jubilee Party after increased frustrations over her role in the 2017 Nairobi Governor's elections.
According to one of her team members, Wanjiru is keen to run for Governor and will leave for a new party if need be.
She will however support President Uhuru Kenyatta come the 2017 elections if indeed she does move.
" She is keen on moving to a new party as she is confident she can compete well for the Governor's seat on her own," the source stated.
According to the source, Wanjiru knows it will be a hard task to win the nominations as there is a strong field and that some might be chosen ahead of her regardless of her standing.
There has been talk of favouritism towards Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko as well as Dagoretti MP Dennis Waweru and nominated MP Johnstone Sakaja.
