Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has made a new promise regarding the City gubernatorial seat which he has expressed interest in.
During a tour of the county, Sonko promised that his “Nairobi Team” would remain united despite allegations of emerging rift within the faction.
Sonko who was flanked by nominated MP Johnson Sakaja added that he would support the former TNA Chairman in his bid to become the City Senator.
The leaders, accompanied by other aspirants vying for various posts, maintained that they would emerge victorious in the upcoming polls.
They urged Nairobi residents to elect leaders who were familiar with the problems affecting the Capital adding that they would collaborate to help the Jubilee Party win a majority of the city seats.
The Senator has in the past been embroiled in a heated argument with his rival, former Gatundu MP Peter Kenneth, as they both seek to unseat Governor Evans Kidero, on a Jubilee ticket.
Speculations of a possible division within Sonko’s team emerged after Sakaja dropped his governorship bid for the Senate seat, while Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru, who was interested in the gubernatorial position, vowed to defend his seat.
Jubilee nominations are expected to take place across the country on April 21 with reports suggesting the Nairobi gubernatorial candidate could be decided through consensus.
