Stop Seeking Boardroom Endorsements -Wanyonyi Tells off Opponents
Nairobi gubernatorial hopeful Tim Wanyonyi has now slammed other aspirants seeking governor seat in Nairobi asking them to come and face him.
Speaking in Kangemi Wanyonyi asked the aspirants not to seek sympathy and boardroom endorsement but to go for voters on ground.
“We are telling them to come out and face me am the only person who have announced his officially, those seeking the same should be talking to voters not holding endorsement meetings in boardroom.” He said.

He further dismissed rumors that he has been fronted to drop his bid in support of Jubilee candidate.
“We are in politics and in politics there is nothing for free you must fight for it and have told everyone that am much ready to face anyone.” He added.
He is however, optimistic that entry of ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna in Nairobi senatorial race will not hinder his bid.
“I don’t think so Sifuna has a right to vie for any position he wants it is the people who determine, why is it that nobody is asking why Maina Kamanda is going for senator and there are others from Mount Kenya who wants to be governor these are people from the same community so let Sifuna vie for that seat. The point is we should not be judged on tribal line …we shall have party primaries and let wananchi decide whoever will carry the day let’s support him or her.” Wanyonyi told the media.
