Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi who is eyeing Nairobi gubernatorial seat has received blessings from Nairobi Clergy led by their chairman Bishop Hudson Ndedwa.
Bishops of various churches who gathered at United Kenya Club, Nairobi, said they hope to elect a leader who will serve the interest of the people.
“We have walked with Wanyonyi and we know that God's blessings are upon him. We bless him today and release him in Jesus name to win in the August General Election,” said Bishop Ndedwa.
Speaking after receiving the blessings, Mr Wanyonyi said he was ready to face his competitors and not get intimidated by anybody especially after the bishops laid their hands on him.
“I am ready to run for governor. After receiving the blessing from the bishops, I know I will win. I will continue to serve all the people of Nairobi as I have served the people of my constituency. I will bring development to this county. I am in this race till the end, I will not compromise on what I do,” said Mr Wanyonyi.
He also urged the church to sensitise members of the public to register as voters during the second phase of registration that is set to begin next week as announced by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
