  • Bishop Margaret Wanjiru thanked the hustler nation united movement for endorsing her to join the race to City Hall.
  • The preacher announced that she will be vying for the post left vacant after the impeachment of Mike Sonko.

Preacher cum politician Bishop Margaret Wanjiru thanked the hustler nation united movement who endorsed her for the Nairobi gubernatorial election.

In a statement on Thursday, December 31, 2020, Bishop Wanjiru expressed her plans to make the capital a better city if elected.

"Thank you Hustler Nation United Movement for the support. Alone I am a soldier but together we are a great army and we will make Nairobi a Better County," her tweet read.

Wanjiru had earlier said she was a ‘hustler nation’ candidate and allied to Deputy President William Ruto.

Race to City Hall

Her announcement comes after Jubilee Party cleared former Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru, who is also the Building Bridges Initiative co-chairman, and Ms. Agnes Kagure to vie for the seat.

Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju confirmed the two names had been submitted to the IEBC.

“We got two aspirants. We shall vet the names and have only a competent and able candidate that will help us retain the Nairobi seat that was Jubilee’s,” Tuju had earlier said before the party confirmed the duo.

The seat fell vacant after Sonko was impeached by MCAs and the Senate approved his removal two weeks ago.
