Sonko vows to support Waititu's gubernatorial bid in 2017

28 December 2015, 12:26 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has vowed to support Kabete MP, Ferdinand Waititu in his gubernatorial bid in the next general elections.

Sonko said he supports Nairobi leaders who shift their political base from the city to vie for other seats.

Speaking during the burial ceremony of former MP Dick Wathika in Nyeri County, Sonko disclosed that he was supporting Wathika to win the Mukurwe-ini parliamentary seat.

“I normally support those who vie for seats after failing in Nairobi. Even here in Mukurwe-ini I didn’t want Kabando wa Kabando to win since I was supporting Wathika. I will also support Waititu in Kiambu since he has left the city,” he told mourners.

Earlier, Kabando who briefly acted as a Master of Ceremony blocked former Kibwezi MP, Kalembe Ndile from taking the podium but when Senator Mutahi Kagwe took over the program, he allowed Ndile to address the mourners.

However, the family of the late Wathika and church had requested politicians to keep off politics but political leaders went against the directive, almost turning the ceremony into a political rally.

Sonko started it all by saying politicians must be accompanied by politics just like a burial of a pastor is accompanied by clergymen.

Leaders present included MPs Kabando wa Kabando, Ferdnard Waititu, Maina Kamanda, Peter Weru, Ann Nyokabi, Mutahi Kagwe, Moses Wetang'ula, Wycliffe Oparanya, Nderitu Gachagua and Devolution CS Mwangi Kiunjuri.
