Why Wangui B Nganga Stand A Chance Over Passaris For Azimio Ticket Tomorrow (Opinion)

The race to replace incumbent Nairobi county women representative Esther Passaris could see another twist as the azimio la umoja one Kenya alliance is expected to issue a joint ticket for the city candidates tomorrow.
