Businessman turned politician Jimmy Wanjigi, on Sunday, faced another hurdle in his bid to popularize his 2022 presidential ambitions in Nyanza.
This is after the ODM presidential candidate was barred from addressing members of the congregation at a Kisumu church.
Wanjigi had attended a church service at Kibuye Catholic Church where he was only recognized but was denied the chance to speak to the congregants.
This is the second time Wanjigi was being barred from speaking to Nyanza residents. A few days ago, his planned meeting in Migori was marred with chaos and violence.
Wanjigi’s planned address to ODM delegates at Maranatha Faith Assemblies Church in Migori was disrupted after a section of the delegates vowed not to let him speak.
Wanjigi has been in Nyanza – Raila Odinga’s political backyard – trying to popularize his ambition to challenge Raila for the party’s presidential ticket.
In his campaigns, Wanjigi has been calling for Raila’s retirement from politics to let fresh blood rule the ODM party something that has not been received well with some ODM faithful.
Wanjigi’s sentiments have made some observers claim that he is out to cause chaos within ODM or its leader in a tight spot.
