“We’ve had several attempts by independent candidates who’ve not received the attention or support from the people, why? MONEY! Like it or not our political landscape is ruled by money, if you have enough of it you will be on billboards and interviews- if you don’t, well,” she said.

Adding that “You people underestimate the power of money in our politics and how it influences all of our decisions. The best of us will still need money to be seen & heard, and it’s something not many have. So if we truly want change; we should be ready to support the process”.
