Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi has agreed to defend his seat on the ODM ticket following a decision by the Azimio la Umoja Coalition to come up with a new line-up in Nairobi county that saw Wanyonyi drop his dreams of becoming the next city governor.
On Thursday morning, the two-term ODM legislator said the decision of running for governor has never been about him and that he was confident in serving the people of Nairobi as their governor in the future.
”Leadership is about serving the people. This has been my philosophy for the past 15 years and I am confident it shall always remain so. As I have said before, it has never been about me. It shall never be about me. It will always be about the people,” the Westlands MP said.
”Si mimi, ni sisi. I am ready to serve the people of Westlands for the third term and I remain firmly in ODM and the Azimio-One Kenya,” he added.
Last week on Thursday, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga brokered a deal at State House that has seen Polycarp Igathe and Prof Philip Kaloki given the Azimio ticket for the Capital’s governor.
