Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria have launched Team Wanjiku, which the duo say will advocate for the rights of the poor.
Team Wanjiku was launched on Sunday at Ruiru Stadium in Kiambu County.
Mike Sonko clearly expressed that the group does not have any political agendas and there role is to ensure citizens get better service for their taxes.
“Team Wanjiku is saying enough is enough. No one is there to protect the unemployed youths and women and that is what our role will be,” said Sonko.
During the launch, Sonko bashed Uhuru’s support team Kieleweke and Ruto’s allies in Tangatanga for ‘putting their selfish interests before the needs of Kenyans’.

“There is need to ensure that every mwananchi partakes in the national cake as opposed to our competitors who think of themselves,” said Sonko.
Kuria also supported Sonko’s sentiments vowing to ensure every Kenyan enjoys their rights and lives in affordable housing.
“Wanjiku ametuita na tumeskia sauti yake, we will fight for your interest,” said Kuria.
East Africa Legislative Assembly MP Hon Simon Mbugua is also among the top leaders of Team Wanjiku.

Mike Sonko also said that Team Wanjiku is born of the realization that after the Handshake, there is no clear Opposition to drive pro-poor agenda.
Teams have been coming up in the recent part like Kieleweke lead by Ngunjiri Wambugu MP of Nyeri Town and is in support of the Handshake.
Team Tangatanga, on the other hand, is spearheaded by Ndindi Nyoro, the Kiharu MP, and Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot. The Tangatanga team is in support of Deputy President William Ruto’s 20202 presidential ambition.
