Peter Kenneth maintains he is the best for Nairobi governor as incumbent Evans Kidero is a “consistent loser” while Mike Sonko is an “unmitigated disaster”.
The three are set to face off in the general election that is 15 days away.
During campaigns in Nairobi last week, President Uhuru Kenyatta asked Kenneth to abandon his bid and join hands with Jubilee’s candidate Sonko.
“It is time to abandon your bid and support the winning team of Sonko-Igathe,” the President said during a rally in Nairobi on Friday.
But Kenneth said Sonko has failed as a Senator and “cannot wash his hands off the mess” he has made.
“I have walked all through and seen the troubles Nairobians are facing. It is evident that even Sonko cannot be a solution to these problems,” he said.
Kenneth lost to the Nairobi Senator in the Jubilee party primaries in April after getting 62,504 votes againstSonko’s 138,185.
Kenneth noted he does not agree with the President but expressed content that they both consider Kidero (ODM) a failure.
“One thing I am happy about is that even Uhuru has accepted that Kidero is a failure,” he said while campaigning in Karen.
He noted he has no problem with Uhuru campaigning for Jubilee candidates but said he should let people decide the leaders they want.
“As the party leader, he is allowed to carry his candidates around…but then governorship is not about party prestige…it is about service delivery to the people,” the independent candidate said.
