Billionaire Jimi Wanjigi has maintained that he is in the presidential race under the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket despite top party officials fuming.
Wanjigi while selling his ambitions in the Lakeside city of Kisumu reiterated that the party officials and the party boss must uphold the democratic ideals in the nominations failure to which atawafagia wote( he will wipe all of them).
The philanthropic billionaire has been on a campaign mission under the “fagia wote” slogan loosely translated to mean he will make things right not only in the ODM party but also in the top leadership of the country once he takes over from President Uhuru Kenyatta who will be exiting the stage in 2022.
Wanjigi also expressed his frustrations that the party was already being unfair by electing some delegates in private rooms within Nairobi, Taita Taveta and other places.
As a result, he insisted that the ODM party must embrace the democratic spirit within which it was founded or else it risks undermining its very own foundation.
“The third is to advise my party officials. I am a life member and I hear in the party, they are trying to do some elections in Nairobi, for places as far away as this. I saw even Taita Taveta complain yesterday that there are delegates being elected in some strange rooms.” He said.
“This party must embrace the spirit on which it was founded, the democratic spirit on which it was founded. This party has had members shed blood to achieve democracy in this country so we are not going to allow a few nyangarikas, officials and others to undermine the democratic basis and the foundations of this party.
Wanjigi continued: “Na wakituchezea, ata wao wataona!! Tutawafagia wote wote wote waondoke kabisa! Democracy must be upheld…”
These sentiments/lectures by Jimmi Wanjigi were seen as an indirect attack to the opposition leader Raila Odinga since no one can undermine the democratic ideals within the party without his approval.
The billionaire recently launched a scathing attack at Mr. Odinga to exit the stage for he young turks since his time was over.
According to Wanjigi, the ODM leader was a liberation hero in the past but not in the current third liberation.
