Safina Party delegates will convene for the National Delegates Convention on Monday at the Bomas of Kenya from 10am.

The party said that the historic event that will be attended by over 2,000 delegates will be led by the party leader Paul Muite.

The party presidential flag bearer Jimi Wanjigi will launch his presidential campaigns during the event.

“He will use the platform to share his vision and hope for Kenya while outlining strategies that he intends to employ to restore the economy and create a fresh start for the country,” the party said.

The NDC will be preceded by a meeting of the National Executive Committee.

Safina became a new home to the businessman Wanjigi after ditching the ODM party of Raila Odinga after he was kicked out during the ODM NDC at Kasarani stadium.

"I resigned from ODM after the brutal violence I experienced at Kasarani during the ODM National Delegates Conference. Hon. Raila made it practically impossible for the Party to hold free, democratic, and credible Presidential nominations," he said.

Last month, Wanjigi accused Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta of working hard to stop him from vying for office.

He accused the two of planning to do whatever it will take to stop him.

"Odinga is in cohort with President Uhuru Kenyatta and they want to stop my presidential bid by whatever means but I will not be a cowed," he said.
