Sakaja picks Absa Bank boss as running mate

Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant and United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Johnson Sakaja has picked Absa Bank Kenya Chief Operating Officer James Njoroge Muchiri as running mate.

The revelation by Sakaja comes days after Azimio One Kenya Alliance revealed Polycarp Igathe and Philip Kaloki as their choice for Nairobi Governor and Deputy Governer choice come August 2022.

Deputy President William Ruto has also joined the corporate world given that Polycarp Igathe is the former Chief operation officer of Equity Group Holdings.

Muchiri is however not new to politics as he was recently beaten in the race for Nyandarua governor’s seat under the UDA ticket by rival and businessman Kiarie Badilisha.

The entrance of the Absa boss is expected to tighten the race to inherit Ann Kananu who is under Jubilee and supports the nomination of Polycarp Igathe and Kaloki as the choice of the alliance.

In what was a quick turn of events on Friday last week, Tim Wanyonyi who was poised to be Igathe’s choice of running mate dropped his ambitions and focus on defending his Westlands seat.
