How Dennis Waweru Cooked Himself Out Of Nairobi Gubernatorial Race and Now Risks Losing Dagoretti Seat



Politics is unpredictable game so they say and a day in politics can be equated to a century. Nairobi Gubernatorial Race has attracted many especially from the Jubilee quarter with the three Waweru, Sonko and Sakaja being the most visible as the front runners. Though they’ve been seen walking hand in hand in their campaigns it’s no doubt that rivalry over the Jubilee ticket has been real.

Dennis Waweru who is the first to have kicked off his campaigns as early as IEBC voters registration where together with Woman Rep Mary Ng’ang’a erected billboards allover the city at a cost of Sh30M according to sources, has months later lost the plot completely.

In recent times,Waweru in line with his Kiambu cronies likes of Maina Kamanda whom he had under his wings went berserk on the rumors that Statehouse was rooting for a Wamalwa ticket. Its still clear in minds how they belched out their discomfort lamenting how an outsider as Wamalwa would be fronted for the Nairobi seat. The protests went for days and eventually cooled off following interventions by the President and assurance that nominations would be fair.

However information gathered by Kenya Insights from a number of highly placed sources in the Jubilee Party innuendos paints as a perfect picture as to why the Banker Waweru has completely been wiped out of the race and the media.

As the squabbles ensued, Waweru sponsored some villagers to act as Kikuyu elders bundled them into a Thika Road hotel to annoint him as a community elder and also an endorsement to the Gubernatorial seat. The fake incident irked he real elders who have since denounced him for being disrespectful and ordered him to ask for forgiveness by appeasing the gods for cleansing.

But Waweru’s troubles don’t end at that, the rich banker according to information in our hold, made the political suicide move when he told off President Uhuru and the Mount Kenya mafia that he could make it without their endorsement and that Dagoreti votes are his and he has the muscles to gunner enough by himself.

Dennis Waweru told President Uhuru off to go back to Gatundu and leave Nairobi to its owners. Hon Waweru foolishly told the president that if there is any seat he (Uhuru) can give, it is the Gatundu constituency and not any other anywhere else in the country and definitely NOT Nairobi governor seat.

This was read a a a sign of disrespect to Uhuru who’s the defacto leader of the Kikuyu community and an insult to the Mount Kenya mafia who calls the shots in this game regardless.

Kenya Insights is told, Waweru has now made powerful enemies that his political future has been deemed and sealed earlier than he could’ve thought. Even during the Jubilee Party launch, he was nowhere to be seen as his counterparts enjoyed free publicity. “Waweru is a dead meat forget about him, he won’t get the gubernatorial seat, the parliamentary seat either. He’s cooked.” A source concludes to Kenya Insights.

Perhaps someone didn’t remind Waweru of the wise African saying that a child can play with his mother’s breast but not his father’s testicles.
