Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko is looking for a Luhya
running mate, it has emerged.
Sonko is eyeing the Nairobi Governor’s position for the 2017
General Elections and is said to be considering every option possible that can
win him a place at the top of the tree.
That includes getting a Luhya running mate to capitalize on
the numerous number of Luhya people living in the city.
He will also, thanks to the running mate, discredit Kidero
on grounds that he run down Mumias Sugar, which is likely to galvanize the Luhya
vote in the city.
“ The Luhya running mate will win the Senator votes in
plenty because of his background and also plead with them to avoid Kidero
because of what he did to Mumias Sugar,” a source close to team Sonko told
Sonko is hoping to displace Kidero but he faces an uphill
task thanks to the large numbers of Luhyas and Luos in the city who subscribe
to the CORD Coalition which Kidero will run for the seat on.
