A secret hand is said to be behind Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s move to nominate NRM self-declared general Miguna Miguna as his deputy.
Word has it that the latest card is mastermind of Deputy President William Ruto who has a loyal ally in Sonko , an alliance that has been made formidable by a common enemy- Kikuyu cartels especially around the executive.
There has been a deliberate and calculated move to undermine Sonko and paint him a failure and he has claimed Interior PS Karanja Kibichu as behind his woes.
The Mt. Kenya cartel had been fronting their own candidate but Sonko has pulled the rug under their feet.
His nomination of Miguna has been interpreted as Ruto’s move to undermine Raila Odinga by bringing in the vocal, feisty lawyer who has since branded Raila a despot. Having Miguna on board is an arsenal for Ruto’s 2022 bid especially since they both share the same disregard for a referendum.
It can also imply that Sonko is showing the executive-read-Uhuru side of the presidency just who is the master of Nairobi politics.
Whichever reason, the surprise nomination is just what Nairobi needs-at least that is what a number of opinion shapers feel.
In appointing Miguna Miguna as his Deputy, Gov. Mike Sonko is trodding on History . Abraham Lincoln, America’s greatest President appointed his bitterest rivals to his Cabinet .. Prof. Doris Kearns Goodwin captured it in her book Team Of Rivals .. Sonko – Miguna may save Nairobi.
