Former Starehe MP Bishop Margaret Wanjiru delivered a strong message on what Deputy President William Ruto will deliver if he emerges victorious in the next elections.
While attacking the government and the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS), Bishop Wanjiru said traders and hawkers have suffered and have been harassed while the government does nothing.
Bishop Wanjiru told the DP that women traders and hawkers find it hard to look good when they are busy running away from the police.
“We have reached a point when you think of going to do a business, you get a headache. Your Excellency, you are seeing us now as women looking good but when you find us in the market, kungara ni shida. How will you look good when you keep looking where you can run to,” said Bishop Wanjiru as she fired up the traders.
The former MP who has declared interest in the governorship position in Nairobi promised traders who were in Ruto’s Karen residence that if the DP wins the election, the next government he forms will respect them.
Bishop Wanjiru said the NMS and the government has failed them since they are being attacked and chased when they are busy looking for money.
“As small-scale traders, we promise you a government that will respect you. We must stop treating traders and hawkers like criminals. If as a government we can’t facilitate for you to work then we should not ask for you to pay any taxes. NMS has failed,” said Bishop Wanjiru.
