Kajiado North Jubilee Women Representative aspirant, Leah Monirei, today said her resolve to win the nomination has not been dashed by those attempting to “steal” leadership through fraud.
Monirei, who exclusively spoke to KNU, in Ongata Rongai said her voters from the populous Kajiado North constituency are intact and will stand by her in the impending party primaries slated for this week.
She was also part of the team that protested the theft of ballot materials that were discovered under unclear circumstances at Oloolaiser Secondary School on Thursday night, ahead of the planned JP nomination exercise on Friday.
Monirei said she feels at home in the team led by JP governor aspirant Tarayia ole Kores, Senator Peter Mositet and Parsimei Gitau, who is vying for Kajiado North MP seat.
“I am appealing to my more than 70 per cent voters in Kajiado North, Kajiado West and other areas to stand by me during the upcoming party nominations so they can together win the party ticket ahead of the August 8, general elections,” said Monirei.
She will be competing against a number of other women aspirants for the seat that has been left by Mary Seneta to seek the Kajiado East MP’s seat against Peris Tobiko, the incumbent.
“This is a position that requires a woman who has stood by her people on development issues at the grassroots, and I am the one who fits that bill,” said Monirei.
Kajiado North constituency had registered more than 120, 000 voters at the close of March this year.
If the support of the local community is anything to go by, Monirei may harvest more votes than any of her opponents if the local community will decide to stand with her.
