Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna has declared that he will vie for the Nairobi Senatorial seat in the 2022 elections.
In a statement on Thursday, 16th December, Sifuna announced that he will seek the seat on the Orange party ticket.
He also went ahead and revealed his new polling station.
“I will henceforth vote at Loresho Primary School in Westlands Constituency. I will be vying for the Nairobi County Senatorial seat in 2022 on The ODM Party Ticket,” he said.
His declaration comes just a day after he announced that he would not be going for any elective post in Bungoma come 2022.
“You people have used your resources campaigning for me to go for gubernatorial, senatorial, or even Kanduyi parliamentary seat but it is unfortunate that I won’t vie for any elective seat in Bungoma in 2022,” Sifuna said.
This is the second time Sifuna will be seeking the Nairobi senatorial seat. In 2017, he came in second losing to Senator Johnstone Sakaja who vied on a Jubilee ticket.
Senator Sakaja has since expressed interest in running for Nairobi gubernatorial seat in 2022.
Other political leaders who have declared interest in the Nairobi Senatorial seat include Lawyer Karen Nyamu who is eyeing the UDA party ticket. Nominated MP Maina Kamanda is rumoured to be seeking the same seat.
