Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Peter Kenneth presented his nomination papers at the Jubilee Party offices in Nairobi.

Kenneth said that his goal was to ensure Jubilee leads the county and is well represented at the assembly.

“Our goal as aspirants for Nairobi governor is to remove [Evans] Kidero. We must achieve this. Any sideshow is not for our taking,”

“We have seen Nairobi deteriorating daily… We will deal with Kidero conclusively on August 8 to end his atrocities.” he said while addressing the press and his supporters.

He said he was ready to square it out with ‘Team Nairobi’ during the Jubilee nominations.

The rivalry between Kenneth and Team Nairobi turned chaotic when the two met at a function recently in Dagoretti.

He was accompanied by MPs Rachel Shebesh (woman representative), Maina Kamanda (Starehe), George Theuri (Embakasi West), Stephen Kariuki (Mathare) and Sonia Bardi (Nominated). Also present were Roysambu MP Waihenya Ndirangu, Dagoretti South parliamentary aspirant John Kiarie and several MCAs.

Team Nairobi is made up of Senator Mike Sonko, former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru, Nominated MP Johnson Sakaja and Dagoretti MP Dennis Waweru.

Sonko once dismissed Kenneth as a foreigner and said he should not be allowed into the race, but the former Gatanga MP’s supporters said his rivals were no match for him.
