Sonko's secret Western Kenya plan

11 May 2016, 20:06 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has hatched a plan to see him ascend to the Nairobi Governor's position.

Sonko is aiming to become the Capital City's second Governor by unseating incumbent Evans Kidero.

To achieve the feat though, he must polarize the large Luhya and Luo following Kidero enjoys in the city and he is thus looking at a Luhya or Luo deputy to help him be able to attract voters.

" Sonko is looking for a deputy Governor from Western Kenya to help him climb up to Governor. He knows that there is a big community of people from Western Kenya in the City and is keen to rope them in," a source close to the Senator told News24.

Sonko knows and accepts that beating Kidero will be a tall order, according to his team.

" Kidero is a strong candidate. He will be incredibly hard to pull down," the source added.

Sonko is the leading candidate to represent the Jubilee Coalition in the race for the seat come the 2017 polls.

Others looking to compete for the seat are MPs Dennis Waweru and Johnstone Sakaja as well as former MP Margaret Wanjiru and former devolution CS Anne Waiguru.
