AUDIO: I will not heed to Uhuru’s directive of stepping down-Kenneth
Nairobi independent governorship candidate Peter Kenneth has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to let Nairobians make their own choice during the August polls.
Kenneth said that it was normal for the president and the opposition chief Raila Odinga to drum up support for their candidates in the city. He added that his rivals had no solution for city dwellers’ problems and that was why they were being taken around.
“I really respect the president and I also know he must take round his candidate in the city to drum up support but he must now leave the people to decide on who to vote for,” said Kenneth.
“People are tired of listening to six-piece voting pattern,” Kenneth stated during his vote hunting mission in Karen today.
President Kenyatta while campaigning for Sonko, Sakaja and Shebesh at Jacaranda Grounds in Nairobi over the weekend asked Kenneth to shelve his ambitions and let Sonko thrive.
The former Gatanga legislator said that Kidero was a ‘consistent failure’ and Mike Sonko had failed in his oversight role.
“Sonko himself cannot be a solution to the problems of Nairobians, since he has failed together with Kidero,” said Kenneth.
He promised that, if elected the second governor of Nairobi, he will make sure every constituency in the city get a ‘mini-city hall’ to ease service delivery.
He further added that his government will ensure every constituency gets state of the art fire engines, garbage collection truck.
President Kenyatta also backed a six-piece voting for Jubilee candidates in Nairobi.
