“I am really looking forward to the opportunity to serve Nairobians and Kenyans as a whole. I feel we really need good leaders, leaders who actually understand that poverty is as a result of bad leadership,” said Passaris.

The opposition party is hoping to clinch the seat that is currently held by Jubilee Party candidate Rachel Shebesh.
