SAKAJA urges Kenya Kwanza Alliance leaders to stop 2027 succession politics

Thursday, January 18, 2024 - Nairobi County Governor, Johnson Sakaja, has urged his colleagues in Kenya Kwanza Alliance to stop engaging in 2027 succession politics.

The governor, in his view, says succession politics is not only an insult to voters but an injustice.

"The focus right now should be on delivery. 

"We do injustice to people when as soon as we are elected we start thinking about the next elections, instead of thinking about the next generation," Sakaja said during an interview with one of the local dailies.

"We say politicians think of the next elections, leaders think of the next generation." 

The governor further said that his administration has taken bold actions in thinking of the next generation in terms of projects.

"That is why we are feeding the next generation children through Dishi na county, why we are issuing bursaries," he said.

Sakaja said within one year, his administration had increased bursaries by Sh1.8 billion which is more than half what was done in 10 years.

"In 10 years Nairobi did Sh3 billion for bursaries and in one year, we have surpassed more than half of that. 

"This is because we are investing and going to the ground," he said.
