Why I Chose Miguna Over Others- Sonko Finally Speaks Out

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has defended his selection of Miguna Miguna for Deputy Governor, saying he will not withdraw the name.

In a recording of a phone interview with Citizen TV(below), Sonko refers to the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila, saying the lawyer is a Kenyan who can effectively fight cartels.

Si uwongo … ni ukweli kwa sababu (It is true because) in the spirit of the so-called handshake and reconciliation, peace and forgiveness, mimi sioni makosa kubwa ambayo Miguna, hata kama sijamconsult, amefanya (I do not see the big mistake Miguna made, even if I did not consult him),” he says.

“I am the Governor of Nairobi and the Constitution is clear that I have the power to appoint the Deputy Governor.”

The Governor notes that Miguna can also be forgiven and that he will help in many ways.

“Miguna is anti-cartels number one,” he says, adding he has no problem with the President but just one person, whom he does not name, but whom he describes as the leader of cartels.

The Governor, however, remained unbowed saying he would pick another name for the seat, which fell vacant following the resignation of Polycarp Igathe in January 2018.
