Ruto Endorses Margaret Wanjiru For Nairobi Governor by Kenyans247(1): Mon 11, January, 2021 07:00am
Deputy President William Ruto has urged members of the public to vote for Bishop Margaret Wanjiru as the next governor of Nairobi.

The DP endorsed the former Starehe member of parliament's candidature during a service at the House of Hope Church in Kayole, Nairobi County.

In his address, DP Ruto urged Kenyans to rally behind the "Hustler Nation" and vote in a leader who would represent their needs as a county.

"Margaret Wanjiru is the right candidate for the hustlers of Nairobi, and all of us will rally behind her. Are we together?" DP Ruto stated.

The DP further promised to streamline Nairobi, vowing to help the county regain its status. "This time round, I can assure you, hii Nairobi tutainyorosha," he declared.
He reiterated that the county was facing a lot of challenges that needed to be addressed urgently, adding that the Nairobi should be reflective of Kenya as a country.


The DP's endorsement comes after Wanjiru's nomination as United Democratic Alliance's candidate for the upcoming by-election in Nairobi following the ouster of Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.

DP Ruto asked Kenyans to shun tribal politics, and instead engage each other on a level of national development and the respect for each and everyone's source of income.

“We cannot go back to tribal politics, we can only move forward if leaders stop seeking leadership positions based on their tribes, and instead focus on ideologies “DP Ruto stated.

He urged that members of the public vote for their leaders in respect to ideology.

“Leadership positions are not awarded, leaders are chosen by Kenyans. If you say you are tired of I don’t know… a dynasty, you are free to seek mandate from the people, let us respect each other as it is the only way to build a strong country,” he added.


Wanjiru in her address to the people, stated that she will ensure that residents of Dandora get a solid waste management system that will empower residents in the area.

She highlighted that the garbage menace in the county was as a result of leaders failing to engage youth in the process, and instead outsourcing the collection process.

"Politics in Nairobi cannot be based on tribes. Nairobi is a melting pot for all tribes. You cannot come to the capital city of this country and tell us there are these tribes in this county," Wanjiru stated, reiterating on the DP's sentiments.

She vowed to fight cartels in Nairobi, and end the ever prevalent menace of water rationing in the county.

"I am promising a better Nairobi, better water, roads, education system. I am tired of our youths idling because they have no jobs," Wanjiru stated, as she assured empowerment projects for youths in the county.

Wanjiru declared war on drugs in Nairobi, stating that they had impaired youths in the county.
