Jimi Wanjigi unveiled his lawyer Willies Evans Otieno as his running mate in the forthcoming presidential elections at an event held at Ufungamano House, Nairobi.

Speaking after the unveiling, the Safina party flagbearer stated that Willis was an easy pick owing to his diligence and professionalism.

"He was an easy choice because I know with him we are in safe hands. He is a great young man, a diligent professional and a great friend who has had my back. He represents Kenyans who are aged 40 years and below," Wanjigi said.

In his acceptance speech, Willis Otieno stated that he will ensure their administration engages the youth in making transformative reforms for the people of Kenya.

"There is an opportunity for every young person in the country. The time has come when we must stand up and say that our voices must be heard. We will be seeking the votes of Kenyans who have suffered in the last 10 years but not those who have enjoyed life in the last decade," he said.
