Kenya: Three Othaya Hopefuls Attend Church Together

THREE Othaya parliamentary aspirants attended a church service together on Sunday. In a show of unity, Peter King'ara, Mary Wambui and Gichuki Mugambi attended a family day church service at Birithia Catholic Church.

They were invited to the pulpit by the priest who prayed for them. It was the first time they were seen together in one function since they announced their candidature.

The aspirants have been criticising each other in campaigns. However, when they were given a chance to speak, they were reconciliatory.

Mugambi, King'ara and Wambui just sold their policies to the faithful. The three seeks to replace President Kibaki who has held the seat for 38 years.

Mugambi, who is vying for the seat on the TNA ticket, promised to conduct peaceful campaigns without mudslinging each other. Wambui, who is also eyeing TNA ticket, urged voters to nominate.

King'ara, who is vying on the GNU party ticket, promised to complete all the projects Kibaki started. Also present was Nyeri aspiring senator who is also the Mathira MP Ephraim Maina.
