I’ll seek other options if off governor race – Sonko
Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has vowed to not drop out of the city governor’s race saying he will seek other options if he is forced to quit for a “preferred” candidate.
He, however, welcomed any politician willing to join city politics, adding that no one should be branded a stranger or an outsider in the city “I will not drop for anyone my bid for Nairobi governor.
I will go all the way to the ballot,” said the senator. Speaking to the People Daily in Njoro, Sonko (pictured) indicated that he will seek voters’ mandate if the forthcoming nominations will not be free and fair for all candidates.
“There is much propaganda that I will quit Jubilee because there is an aspirant who is being imposed, I remain loyal to President Uhuru Kenyatta unless we are forced to drop, I will seek voters’ mandate,” he said.
“I have stood and fought for this government for over five years and I cannot leave my party easily, I will fight till the end and there should be no candidate who should get a direct nomination,” he added.
