Miguna’s former running mate reveals why she quit Nairobi governor race

Miguna Miguna’s former running mate Karen Wangenye has revealed why she stepped down before the highly anticipated August 8 General Election.

Ms Wangenye indicated that she quit the gubernatorial race because of a poor working relationship with Mr Miguna.

“I have stepped down because of poor working relationship with my candidate, I believe in teamwork, if there is no teamwork, we cannot achieve what we are setting out to deliver to Nairobians,” she said.

“Let it be known that I have nothing against Miguna and I wish him well. All I’m saying is that we are not compatible and I am not in a position to work with his methods of addressing issues,” Ms Wangenye added.

Ms Wangenye highlighted that she believes in Miguna’s ideas and that Nairobi needs to implement such.

“Unfortunately I’m here today to let the public know that I would like to resign from that position. Not that I do not believe in the cause; in fact, I very much believe his ideas are exactly what we need to implement to make Nairobi the green city in the sun once more,” she said.

Miguna dumped his first running mate, James Gathungu, in June before replacing him with Ms Wangenye.

The Independent candidate in the Nairobi governorship race received his nomination certificate in June after being cleared by the IEBC.

Miguna will battle it out with Governor Evans Kidero and Senator Mike Sonko.

Others in the same August 8 race include Godfrey Wanyoike (Independent) Peter Kenneth (Independent), Lawrence Kamau (Party Democratic Unity) and Michael Mutinda of Agano Party.
