A video has emerged on the internet of Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Bishop Margaret Wanjiru dishing out cash handouts to a group of youth ahead of the Jubilee nominations on Monday.
In the video, the former Starehe MP, who is wearing a Jubilee outfit, is seen holding a wad of cash in her hand as a group of youth surrounds her car. She is seen handing cash to each one of those in the crowd who reach out for it. One person in the video can be heard complaining that Sh50 is too little an amount to push his way through the crowd over.
Wanjiru is running for the Nairobi Governor Jubilee nomination against Mike Sonko and Peter Kenneth.
Kenyan electoral laws ban candidates from giving cash to voters in exchange for votes, with those found guilty of the offense risk being banned from contesting. There is no word yet on whether IEBC is reviewing the video or if they will take any action against her.
