Nairobi County gubernatorial seat candidate Miguna Miguna has once again been dumped by his running mate, with 10 days to the August 8th general elections.
29-year-old businesswoman Karen Wangenye, who holds a degree in Sociology from the Catholic University of Eastern Africa in an address to the media at a Nairobi hotel on Saturday cited poor working relationship between her and Miguna as the reason she decided to ditch him.
"If a team player is not compatible with his people then they are not fit to be in any office," she said.
“I have never been in politics before, but I have known Miguna for a long time. He has been my mentor till we came to this agreement that I be his running mate,” she said.
“I have stepped down because of poor working relationship with my candidate, I believe in teamwork, if there is no teamwork, we cannot achieve what we are setting out to deliver to Nairobians,” she added.
“I believe that our manifesto is exactly what Nairobi needs but we cannot deliver on it if we do not have team work,” she said.
Wangenye accused Miguna of showing contempt to his rivals in the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.
“I don’t think the way to go about it is by abusing the media and your opponents because you have better education,” she noted.
Before picking Wangenye as his running mate, Miguna dropped 24-year old James Githungu, who he had named as his running mate earlier.
Miguna faces Incumbent Evans Kidero of ODM, Senator Mike Sonko of Jubilee and Peter Kenneth (independent) in the August 8th general election.
