Bishop Wanjiru caught on camera dishing out campaign money – VIDEO

A video has emerged online showing Nairobi Jubilee Party gubernatorial aspirant, Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, dishing out cash to her supporters.

The clip, which was captured during Bishop Wanjiru final campaign ahead of the Jubilee Party primaries on Monday, has been shared widely on social media.

Wanjiru is seeking the Jubilee Party ticket to unseat Nairobi governor Dr Evans Kidero.

In the 52-second video, Wanjiru, dressed in a Jubilee Party t-shirt, is seen atop her vehicle holding a wad of cash and handing out single notes to a crowd milling around her convey.


Some of the people in the crowd can be heard complaining that Bishop Wanjiru was giving out little cash and that they would not risk their lives for it.

Electoral laws outlaw the the practice of giving out cash by politicians in exchange for votes and aspirants found guilty of this malpractice are liable to being locked out of the polls.

Dr Kidero has also recently been caught on camera dishing out cash to youths in Nairobi while in March a video emerged online showing people who were said to be Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko’s aides dished out cash to Mombasa residents as an inducement for them to attend a rally by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Sonko however denied claims of his involvement in the incident from the video that showed Jubilee Party agents distributing the party’s flags and people walking away with money in their hands.
