Drawn from various parts of the city, the leaders stated they were alive to the fact that the country was headed towards a political transition and that the Cotu boss would be best positioned to negotiate on behalf of their people.

“As city residents, we are concerned by the differences we have with leaders from our community displayed here in Nairobi. We are worried that if we don’t work together we will lose Nairobi despite being the majority. We are telling our elder Atwoli that during his address on December 31, he should give a key priority to Nairobi and give us the best direction to follow,” said the caucus leader Faustine Imbali.

He said that ahead of the 2022 General Election, the Western region would speak in one voice.

“We want to speak with one voice as a community come 2022. Anyone bringing confusion should not be given any chance.

Currently, Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi is the only leader as a community we have seen on the frontline. If others come, we will negotiate but for now we are behind Wanyonyi,” said Imbali.

The group castigated Makadara MP George Aladwa over what they termed as playing politics of conmanship and hooliganism.

“We are telling Aladwa to keep off Hon Wanyonyi completely, ODM is a free and fair party and instead of hiring goons, he should engage his people on the ground to support his bid like Wanyonyi is doing,” said John Maiyo a member of the group.
