Sonko’s Team Nairobi splits as PK intensifies his campaign

The Jubilee Party’s popular ‘Team Nairobi’ has narrowed down to comprise of Senator Mike Sonko and former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru.

Dennis Waweru who allegedly has withdrawn his candidature and presented nomination papers for Dagoretti South MP bid has bolted out after sources indicated that he has been convinced to do so by the JPs bigwigs.

While speaking in a local Radio station on Friday, Sonko and Wanjiru said they have a post-primaries deal in the race to unseat Governor Evans Kidero.

They said the person who gets the JP ticket will appoint the other as the running mate for the August 8 general election.

“Our competitors will not defeat us as we are ready for them. Sonko and I are working as a team,” Wanjiru said.

Waweru could not be reached for comment as text and calls to him went answered.

Sonko, MPs Johnson Sakaja, Waweru, and Wanjiru had expressed their interest but Sakaja bowed out of the race and presented his papers for Nairobi Senator nomination to the party headquarters last week.
