Wamae resigns from Roots Party, here is why

Former presidential running mate Justina Wamae is no longer a member of the Roots party.

In a statement on Thursday, Wamae said she has resigned from the party voluntarily.

In a thinly veiled statement, Wamae took a swipe at the party officials, disclosing that the Roots party’s end goal was to get the political party’s funds.

“A party is not entitled to funding if they do not have elected members. The hostility besides the project was that mizizi will benefit from the fund. I have voluntarily resigned. They can now eat hot air. Watch this space,” She tweeted.

According to Wamae, her business with the party ended after William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua were declared President and Deputy President respectively.

“My role as Roots party of Kenya presidential running mate lapsed with the declaration of President William Ruto and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on 15th of August and subsequent upholding of the election by the Supreme Court of Kenya on September 5,” she said in her resignation letter.

She appealed to Roots Party officials to accord the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties the necessary assistance in order to clear her name from the party’s register.

“I tender my resignation as a member of the Roots Party of Kenya. Kindly accord the ORPP the requirements for my name’s prompt removal from your party register.”
