I won't vie for Nairobi Governor's seat, says Mudavadi

10 March 2015, 10:31 Philomenah Chebet

Nairobi - United Democratic Front (UDF) leader, Musalia Mudavadi has dismissed reports that he will run for the Nairobi Governor’s seat in 2017.

This comes following a report by a local daily that a group of city businessmen who hail from Central Kenya want the Amani coalition leader to gun for the Governor’s position in the coming election.

Speaking to News24, Mudavadi trashed the report and asked members of the public to disregard the story which he termed as alarming.

“That is utter nonsense and idle talk. Who are these unnamed businessmen that want me to run for the Governor’s seat?” posed the former deputy prime minister.

“I have never sat down with anybody to discuss how I will run for Governor’s seat. I was shocked to read about my candidature on the newspaper for the first time,” he added.

Mudavadi, who vied for Presidency in the last general election and emerged third, told News24 that his focus in 2017 is still on the Presidency.

According to the report in the daily, the group of businessmen want mudavadi to to run for Nairobi Governorship in 2017 on a Jubilee ticket as they believe Jubilee’s image will be boosted if they front a non-Kikuyu for the seat.
