Will women support Waiguru?

01 February 2016, 18:42 William Korir

Nairobi - Will women support Anne Waiguru in her bid to become Nairobi Governor?

Waiguru is already building a campaign to see her compete for the Governor's seat come the 2017 polls which has seen her traverse the city announcing her candidature.

She will base her candidacy on the fact that she is a woman and that there has never been a female Governor in the country.

In her notes since she first announced that she would go for the Governorship, she has based all her supposed upcoming decisions on the women in the county and stated that they will help her make a decision.

But will they help her to a win?

Will a female pronged candidacy help Waiguru to the top of the tree? Observers feel not.

All previous female candidates for senior positions that have based their supposed candidacy in Kenyan politics on support from women have failed miserably.

Waiguru is unlikely to be the first.

" The adage that women will support a woman does not work in Kenya. Not now, not ever," Michael Njenga, a political scientist says.

" The fact, which has been proved in the past is that women will support a leader who they feel will deliver and of course the tribal affiliations as well as party business. The reality is that they will look for a leader who can lead and can win and I do not think that Waiguru fits the bill," he added.

Waiguru herself though, denies that she is only looking to women only to boost her.

" The person who becomes Governor must win the support of all people and everyone knows that," she says.

For now though, in her eyes, she has yet to announce her candidacy.
