Latest word in the high streets is that all Jubilee Party elected leaders are set to endorse Senator Mike Sonko in a move to thwart former Gathanga MP Hon Peter Kenneth. It seems Hon Eugene Wamalwa has been edged out of the game plan and may end up campaigning for Jubilee as a principal without an elective with hope that Uhuru will be re-elected to appoint him to a more powerful cabinet slot like that of Devolution or National security.
It also appears that Peter Kenneth was set to fail in the Nairobi governor race. A well placed source hinted that DP Ruto has woken up to reality that it is only Mike Sonko who can deliver the powerful seat to Jubilee.
With DP Ruto’s project Eugene Wamalwa out of the race, Peter Kenneth and Mike Sonko will square it out in the Jubilee nominations, however it is also alleged that Statehouse operatives are keen on messing up Jubilee nominations in order to give ODM’s Governor Kidero a through pass for re-election. Kidero a close ally to president Uhuru with deep business connections.
Effectively Margret Wanjiru, Dennis Waweru, Sakaja Johnson will have to seek mandate in other positions with Wanjiru or Waweru tagged for running mate position.
