Monday February 11, 2019 - Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka’s presidential bid has received a huge boost after a Kamba billionaire promised to bankroll his presidential campaigns in 2022.
Speaking on Sunday, Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, said he will support Kalonzo financially so that he can succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
Sonko also revealed that he will be mobilising support for Mr Musyoka's bid to State House come 2022 elections.
“I understand the President more than anyone else around here, you can call me the errand boy of the president... we will rally behind you (Musyoka),” Sonko said.
“I do not need to vie for the presidency. What I want to do is to help Musyoka, our elder brother move forward, to help you until you retire or you become old,” Sonko added.
Sonko further pledged to use the Sonko Rescue Team to help in community mobilisation for Kalonzo's campaigns
He concluded by asking Governors Prof Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni), Dr Alfred Mutua (Machakos) and Mrs Charity Ngilu (Kitui) to respect Mr Musyoka and join other leaders in uniting the community.
“Unity is very important in any community.”
“When Raila went to Nyanza with the president, I saw all Nyanza governors, MPs and MCAs.”
“I will make sure that our community is united," Sonko said.
