Presidential Aspirant in the August, 9, 2022 general elections Jimi Wanjigi has asked Kenyans to reject President Uhuru Kenyatta’s preferred presidential candidate, Raila Odinga.
Wanjigi who is vying for the top seat on a Safina Party ticket says Kenyans are wise enough to elect a leader of their choice and who will front economic growth of the country.
Speaking to the media in Nairobi on Saturday, Wanjigi appealed to President Uhuru Kenyatta to protect his legacy and retire from politics after his second term lapses.
The presidential hopeful in the August, 9 general election reiterated that Kenyans are fully aware of how the country was when Uhuru took the stewardship in 2013 and the current status,”
“You are fronting Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition Party candidate Raila Odinga to enhance your legacy, what legacy? That of oppressing Kenyans economically?” Posed Mr. Wanjigi.
He said that it is evident Kenyans are tired of a recklessly controlled government that has put Kenyans in economic desperation.
Wanjigi who was once a close ally to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party leader Raila Odinga until things fell apart early this year when his presidential bid was rejected by the party noted that the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition Party only aims at benefitting few individuals with top jobs at the expense of suffering Kenyans.
“We need a totally different leadership in the country and that will be attained by one Jimi Wanjigi who has matters of Kenyans at heart,” He said.
The Safina presidential candidate says his main objective is to turn the economic tables in the country so that each and every Kenyan directly benefit.
Since the formation of Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition Party, President Uhuru Kenyatta has been seen openly campaigning for Raila Odinga as his preferred presidential candidate for the August, 9 general election.
Uhuru together with his preferred choice Odinga have been openly asking the Deputy President William Ruto to resign from the government, sentiments that Ruto has since rubbished clearly stating that he will not resign.
