The Gender Chief Administrative Secretary (GCAS) Hon Beatrice Elachi has unveiled allegations that the second in command Dr William Ruto blocked her parliamentary bid because of her "perceived home background". In a conclusive media interview by the Citizen TV’s daybreak show today, Elachi revealed that DP met her and asked her not to contest for Jubilee party ticket because Her tribe would work against Her.
“I was stubborn. I will be very honest on this show. I remember my deputy president telling me that I was a Kikuyu and I was not going to win the seat,” Elachi told the media.
She also other Jubilee party leaders unveiled other party candidates mainly to oppose her. She also noted that the Jubilee party frustrated her candidature to an extent of taking Her win to the party's tribunal. On february 19th 2021, Hon Elachi was appointed a Kenyan CAS in the ministry of Public Service and Gender Affairs by the President. This was after she had resigned as the speaker of the Nairobi County assembly on August 11th, 2020.
