Speaking to the media after the incident, Wanjigi said that what he wants is for the party to to open the space for democracy.
"All I want is for the party to open space for democracy, open the door, open the door," Wanjigi said.
Wanjigi said that he wanted the party to cancel a memo that was sent inviting party delegates to NDC meeting(in which agenda to nominate flag bearer was allegedly left out), and produce another memo.
"Registrar of political parties have given until 22nd of April for party nominations. Why don't they cancel the defective notice and issue an effective one," he said.
