Sonko turns down Kalonzo

13 May 2016, 20:23 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has turned down  an offer to head back to his Ukambani homeland and instead run for the Nairobi Governor’s seat.

Sonko is highly thought of by CORD Co principal Kalonzo Musyoka who had called on the Senator to put his hat in the race to be Machakos Governor in the 2017 General elections.

Sonko though is happy in the ruling Jubilee Coalition.

“Sonko is happy in Jubilee and wants to take on the Nairobi Governor’s position which he is confident he will win,” a source close to the flamboyant leader told News24.

“There has been talk of him moving back to Machakos. The room is there and the offer still stands but he is not keen,” the source added.

Sonko is very popular in the Capital City and is keen to dethrone incumbent Evans Kidero.

A move to his homeland will beckon in future but only if the finds the going tough in terms of dealing with Kidero.
