Kenyans online want top social media strategist Pauline Njoroge to run for the Nairobi Woman Rep seat in 2027 on the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Party, a position currently held by Esther Passaris, who is in her second term.
Ms. Njoroge had earlier made a post about her Thursday afternoon meeting with Raila Odinga at his Capitol Hill office in Nairobi and captioned a photo with the Opposition leader ”Once in a while we go to draw inspiration from the indefatigable and indomitable Baba, to continue with the battle,” prompting a response from Kenyans.
”Baba the Enigma and Pauline Njoroge Nairobi County Mhesh and SM guru. Kali sana ,” Charles Mburu writes.
”Incoming Women rep Nairobi county…all the best Pauline Njoroge,” Kipsang Chirchir says.
Another, Wanjiru Lynette Kimemia notes, ”Then you exchanged colours of your sweater and half jacket respectively. .”
Councilor Njohi points out, ”Nairobi women rep on an ODM ticket. Early in the morning that one.”
”God willing in 2027, you should be in the Ballot for a Kiambu or Nairobi seat,” Waithaka Njoroge’s comment reads.
Pauline Njoroge, a strong critic of the Kenya Kwanza government is a close ally of former President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Currently a Jubilee Party member, her arrest in August sparked angry reactions from Opposition supporters, and the police were on the spot for allegedly planting allegations on her.
