Nairobi - Former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru is set to quit the Jubilee Coalition.
Wanjiru is allegedly unhappy with efforts by the Jubilee Party leadership to shoehorn Dagoretti MP Dennis Waweru as well as nominated MP Johnstone Sakaja into being the Jubilee flag bearer for the Nairobi Governor's race in the 2017 General elections.
The Former MP, who quit opposition party ODM for Jubilee last year is said to be thinking of running on another party's ticket.
" Things are not going well in the Jubilee fold as some are claiming favouritism of some candidates and the Bishop is not happy," a source close to the evangelist told News24.
Her support for President Uhuru Kenyatta is said not to be in question but with the muscling that is going on within Jubilee, she is unhappy and is said to be thinking of moving to a different stable.
" She supports President Uhuru Kenyatta and his re-election bid but might go elsewhere to find a home for her bid to be Governor," the source added.
In the past, she has been linked with the Senator's seat set to be vacated by Mike Mbuvi Sonko, who is also eyeing the Governor's seat but has denied it.
" I have not changed. I have a vision for Nairobi," she said earlier in the year.
Whoever wins the Jubilee ticket will face incumbent Evans Kidero who is set to run on a CORD ticket.
