Businessman cum politician Jimi Wanjigi has continued with his onslaught against the current crop of leaders we have in the country.


Winding up his tour in Nyanza region, Wanjigi took a swipe at the leaders saying they are only concerned with their interests living behind innocent Kenyans who have continued to suffer.

“We have leaders who only think about their stomachs. People who don’t understand the pain most Kenyans are going through”.

he said.

He argued that what Kenya needs most is an economic revolution and not change of laws to cater for certain interests.

Commenting on the high cost of fuel, the businessman accused MPs for passing laws which impact negatively on mwananchi.

“I am calling on Kenyans to reject them come 2022 general elections”.

he said.

Wanjigi also called for review of the Energy and Petroleum Act 2019, which gives the regulator powers to increase fuel prices at will.

“We want the government to urgently review the cost of energy which has a great knock-on effect on the food basket and household income”.

he maintained.

About 23 MCAs from Migori county led by Rongo Central MCA Maende Ogweno apologised to Wanjigi over a Friday incident in which his motorcade was stoned in the county.

“We are sorry to what happened in Migori and apologise on behalf of all Migori people”.

said Ogweno.

But Wanjigi expressed satisfaction with the reception by ODM delegates during his tour of Migori, Siaya, Homa Bay and Kisumu counties.

Wanjigi was, however, blocked from holding a meeting at the Kisumu Central ODM office in the afternoon because another meeting convened by lawyer Tom Ojienda was already scheduled for the venue.

He said his mission in Nyanza was not to undermine ODM leader Raila Odinga but to consolidate the party’s support.

“I am here in Nyanza not as an enemy of the people by virtue of running for president, but as a life member of the Orange party founded on strong democratic tenets and values”.

he maintained.

Wanjigi wondered why a section of ODM party officials were apprehensive about his intention to seek the party’s nomination to run for president.

During his tour, Wanjigi asked local residents to consider him as their own and back his bid for president.

“I am presenting myself to you…I know the sovereign power rests in your hands, and you will give us a fair judgment”.

he said after meeting delegates from Siaya county.
