UHURU rejects MIKE SONKO as city MPs vow to back KENNETH for Nairobi Governorship

Thursday March 16, 2017 - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko’s chances of becoming the next Governor of Nairobi are growing thinner by the day after almost all Jubilee MPs in Nairobi vowed to back Peter Kenneth instead.

Speaking yesterday, the 12 Jubilee MPs who included Women Representative Rachel Shebesh and nominated MP, Sonia Birdi, dismissed Mike Sonko’s candidature saying they will support Peter Kenneth.

The legislators noted that Sonko as a non-starter who lacks a vision to develop the city.

The MPs accompanied Peter Kenneth to present his nomination papers to Jubilee.

“We have all submitted our nomination papers to the party. President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, had instructed us to agree through consensus who gets what seat. But our competitors refused. Now, our team including Peter Kenneth is sure of trouncing them,” Shebesh said.


  1. Although I love Senator Sonko's charisma and bravity to fight for the poor and Wanjiku's rights, he woul be much better remaining a senetor and I am sure he will be voted back in a landslide. He has limited interlrctual capacity to handle and manage county governor job for the capital city home county. Peter Kenneth has every talent and managerial talent for thr job and has a much stronger probability to edge out Kidero.

  2. Sonko is fit to be an MCA.That he will win with a landslide

  3. Sonko does not have any PR. He behaves like a street boy and talks with a lot of proudnes. He doesn't have any qualities of becoming even a senator leave a lone Governor. His attitude qualifies him to be an MCA downwards.

  4. I don't think people understand Nairobi politics and we tend to forget so fast, the last election Sonko gunned over 800k votes, as we speak all those who vote are singing and ready to die for Sonko, the president will never listen to the Kamamda group they mean bad for us all. Ask who is the sponsor?? JW, Kulei and the like........ are there.
