She started on her journey to DP Ruto”s home at Karen for a prayer session and came out a Hustler. She is the leader of Jesus is Alive Ministries a pentecostal church based in Nairobi. She is a church leader and a politician.
Bishop Wanjiru the former MP for Starehe lost on her bid to become the senator for Nairobi in the 2017 elections. She went back to the pulpit and her joining DP Ruto’s camp has a lot of political meaning.
Bishop Margaret Wanjiru has been keeping this move close to her chest and the declaration caught many by surprise.
Bishop Wanjiru has a fanatic following especially her church members who are ready to do anything they are told by her without any question. She used to be a close ally of Raila Odinga until she lost her senatorial bid.
Deputy President William Ruto has been receiving delegations from several Christian churches across the country. This might give him a head start in his bid for the presidency come 2022.
