Mike Sonko declares a 10-year break from politics

Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko had confirmed a 10-year break from politics ahead of the upcoming Nairobi by-elections in February 2021.

He also confirmed withdrawing a case before the court to halt the upcoming by-elections in order to pave way for a transparent battle between the candidates.

Speaking on Saturday, the former Governor noted that he will wait for God’s time giving reference as to how President Uhuru Kenyatta waited to 2013 after losing the 2002 elections.

Sonko was among several leaders including Deputy president William Ruto who attended the burial of James Ngui, the uncle to Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr.

The former Governor warned politicians against their intention to vet Anne Mwende Kananu for the deputy governor position in order to interfere with the coming by-election.

According to Sonko, he had withdrawn Kananu’s name from the list of nominees of the deputy governor and that it will be fare for the candidates to battle it out.

The vice president’s position fell vacant following the resignation of Polycarp Igathe who cited trust issues under Mike Sonko thus hindering his ability to deliver for the people of Nairobi.

The name of Anne Mwende Kananu will be vetted by the Appointment Commitment before her name is then forwarded to the County Assembly for the final decision.
