Business mogul Jimmy Wanjigi seems to be fighting a losing battle after the Orange Democratic Movement secretary general Edwin Sifuna dented his hopes of being the party's flag-bearer for the 2022 general elections.
In an interview with Spice FM morning show popularly known as the situation room, Sifuna stated that Wanjigi was yet to make his application for the party ticket and that the party had closed all the applications for the presidential ticket.
"First of all, he has not presented himself for the presidential ticket. Jimi Wanjigi is not a candidate for the party’s presidential ticket, When we opened the process, there were only two applicants, and they are known." He said.
According to the vocal Raila ally, Wanjigi had tabled a request to have the party reopen the application process and the Secretary General will be submitting the application to the National Executive Committee in the next two weeks.
Mr. Sifuna poked holes in Wanjigi's intentions for the party by accusing him of demanding that only one of the four methods in the party constitution be used to pick the presidential flag bearer in the 2022 elections.
