I have not quit 2017 race, Jubilee leader says

15 September 2016, 17:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - I am still in the race for the 2017 elections, a Jubilee Party leader says.

Margaret Wanjiru says that she is not quitting the race despite the perceived thorough competition from within the Jubilee Party for the nomination ticket to represent the ruling coalition in the race for the Nairobi Governor come the 2017 polls.

Wanjiru has to face the likes of Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko, Water CS Eugene Wamalwa, MP’s Dennis Waweru and Johnson Sakaja and others to get the chance to be Governor.

And despite poll ratings putting her a distant fifth in ability to win the polls, Wanjiru says she is going nowhere.

“I am happy here and am going nowhere. I will be on the ballot. I can assure you,” she told News24.

She stated that despite reports that she was ready to be a running mate to other Jubilee leaders, she is happy to contest and will not stand down for anyone.

“I will not stand down for anyone. This who want a pact with the bishop must be ready ti support her. Otherwise, I will go it alone,” she added.

Wanjiru took part in a debate between potential Nairobi Gubernatorial seat aspirants Wednesday night and did not fare badly as she aims to be the next leader of the country’s Capital City.
