Peter Kenneth Rejects Uhuru's Job Offer, Stays In The Gubernatorial Race

Peter Kenneth Governor

Former Gatanga Member of Parliament Peter Kenneth has rejected a job offer from the president in favor of uncertainties of running for public office. The man from Bahati has refused to step down for Mike Mbuvi Sonko despite requests from the top leadership of the ruling party.
He was speaking in Karen when he made clear his intention to stay put till August the 8th. Peter Kenneth urged the president to let the people decide on their own who they wanted to lead the country's capital. He further said Kidero was a failure and Sonko a disaster in waiting.
Kenneth was also quoted saying he was the man best suited to clean the mess that Nairobi is. The man has promised to provide every constituency with its own mini city hall, fire stations and own garbage collection trucks.
Uhuru Kenyatta had earlier reminded Peter Kenneth that Sonko was the man the people of Nairobi had settled on during the party primaries and therefore he had to respect the will of the people. Peter Kenneth rejected the party primaries outcome saying it was the result of a shambolic process. He is also on record saying the deputy president William Ruto rigged him out.
Peter Kenneth is part of an alliance of independence candidates led by Kiambu governor William Kabogo. Others in the caucus are Bundotich Zedekiah Kiprop alias Buzeki and Tetu MP.
Tables have clearly turned for Peter Kenneth of the last few months. Earlier, it was Sonko being pressured to step down for Peter Kenneth who supposedly was being fronted by the Murang'a businessmen in preparation for 2022 succession politics. Sonko stood his ground and clinched the Jubilee ticket by a clear margin.
Many opinion polls have declared the Nairobi race a two horse one pitting the incumbent against the most unconventional politician this country has lived to witness. It is a race too close to call.
