"Even in My Party UDA, there are people I cannot vote for" Popular UDA Aspirant Tells Voters

Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, a senatorial candidate from Nairobi, has claimed that not every member of her party, the UDA, is deserving of her vote. Wanjiru believes that regardless of one's political membership, one should base their vote on a person's character and record of accomplishments. “Even in my party (UDA), there are people I cannot vote for. They all know my stand, if someone has a questionable character or has zero service delivery track record, I Margaret Wanjiru cannot be part of their team,” Wanjiru said.

She claimed that voters should not pick leaders who made promises to them but failed to keep them when they were given a chance. Wanjiru made the contradicting claim that Kenyan voters have begun to follow the "six-piece" voting trend, in which they choose candidates from their favored political party.“When people go out and campaign together, the crowd start looking at the whole team. There could be one or two that they don’t agree with, but for the sake of others we will do party politics,” she said.

Wanjiru, who is contesting the Nairobi Senatorial seat on a UDA ticket, citing that leaders who did not deliver 80-85% of their promises on their first terms should not dismiss by being voted out.
