Peter Kenneth quits Jubilee Party, to run as Independent candidate
Former Gatanga Member of Parliament, Peter Kenneth has broken his long silence and said that he will contest the Nairobi County gubernatorial seat as an independent candidate.
The former presidential candidate has now confirmed that his fight with the Jubilee nominee Mike Mbuvi Sonko is not yet over.
Kenneth said that the Jubilee primaries was a ‘total farce’ and riddled with what he termed as ‘secular voting’.
“We want to see change in Nairobi,” Kenneth said while addressing the press.
He said that the party primaries were badly managed and that their appeals at the party tribunal was never responded to.
In the party primaries, Senator Mike Sonko won with 138,185 votes against Mr Kenneth’s 62,504. Bishop Margaret Wanjiru came in a distant third with 7,654 votes.
He further said that his bid to become the Nairobi governor is the need to devolve services from the City Hall to the constituency and people of Nairobi.
Kenneth added that he will transform the city into a clean city during his first three months in office.
He also said he will undertake the urban renewal for those council workers living in the city council houses.
“Nobody should be removed from their house in the pretext of development,” Kenneth said.
