Leaked WhatsApp messages revealed the Nairobi County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko’s favorite candidate in the forthcoming Kibra parliamentary by-election.
Taking to his Facebook page, Sonko posted a video explaining why he has not been answering his WhatsApp messages being offline for a while thus the messages were popping at the moment he was taking the video.
As Governor Sonko was filming his phone ten WhatsApp groups messages flowed into his phone.
Sonko received a message from a group that might have been formed with an aim to drum support for the Jubilee aspirant McDonald Mariga among the WhatsApp groups’ messages that flowed in while he was filming his phone.
The group named ‘Mariga for MP Kibra’ had over 200 unread messages and the topmost WhatsApp group was named “Kibra Kutawaka” as per the shared video by Sonko on his Facebook page.
Governor Sonko’s WhatApp groups’ messages in the video he posted on Facebook did not show his membership in any group that is campaigning against Mariga and that was a clear indication that Sonko’s favorite candidate is Jubilee’s Mariga.
This wasn’t a surprise for the Nairobi governor to support Mariga candidacy in Kibra by-election since he was also a member of the Jubilee Party because Mariga will fly Jubilee’s flag in the Kibra parliamentary seat election.
