Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, a Nairobi aspirant for the governor’s seat on a Jubilee ticket, has been arrested by police for disrupting the party nominations.
The former Starehe MP was allegedly disrupting the election process at City Park polling center, and is being held at Parklands Police Station. He will be arraigned in court on Thursday, says Nairobi County police boss Japheth Koome.
Wanjiru is battling Peter Kenneth and Mike Sonko for the Jubilee Party nomination being held today. Peter Kenneth and Mike Sonko are the front-runners, and the winner of the primary will get a ticket to unseat incumbent Governor Evans Kidero of ODM in the August 8th general election. Kidero is unopposed in the ODM primaries.
