Ruto endorses Sonko for Nairobi Governor
21 April 2016, 20:30
Nairobi - DP William Ruto has endorsed Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko for the position of Nairobi Governor.
The DP is said to have told a group of aspiring Nairobi Governorship candidates to wait for Sonko to run the race first stating that he is the best candidate to win the seat for Jubilee in the 2017 General Elections.
" The DP was clear that it would be tough for anyone to defeat Sonko," a source close to the DP told News24.
Sonko is competing with several Jubilee Coalition politicians for the party ticket.
The others are MP's Dennis Waweru and Johnstone Sakaja, former MP Margaret Wanjiru and former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru.
Whoever comes on top will face off with current Governor Evans Kidero who is certain to wing the CORD ticket for the polls.
