Speaking Sunday in Kuresoi town, Cheboi said the President and his deputy have given the three their blessings to contest in 2017 under the Jubilee party.
"The President and his deputy want to keep the former CS's on their side and that is why they will support some of them to contest for top seats in the upcoming poll," said Cheboi.
"The likes of Ngilu, Koskei and Lenku will be governors and you have seen them make their intentions public," he added.
Cheboi said that President Kenyatta and his deputy intend to front strong and combative candidates for governorship as a way of solidifying their national influence across the nation.
