Kenya: Women Rep Aspirant Warns Against TNA Euphoria

An aspirant for women's representative in Kiambu has warned Kenyans against voting on party euphoria.

Catherine Wanjiru, who vying on the Democratic Party ticket, said the current TNA euphoria in Kiambu may see good leaders locked out. She urged voters to chose leaders who will offer servant leadership regardless of the party they are in.

She said many aspirants are leaving TNA because they fear the party's primaries on January 17 will not be free and fair.

Wanjiru was speaking at a rally in Muguga Kikuyu. She said leaders should be gauged on past performance and involvement in

community projects. He said some aspirants are riding on the popularity of TNA presidential aspirant Uhuru Kenyatta.

The hopeful said she has helped in the rehabilitating of alcohol addicts and street children, many of whom are now responsible citizens.

She promised to work with other leaders and all players to uplift education standards in the county.
