Newly elected Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja has issued a brief and unequivocal statement regarding his two Kenya Kwanza colleagues Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru and Nakuru County governor Susan Kihika.

In a post by Kenyans.Co.Ke, the online publication attempted to conduct an online poll on possible contenders for the chair of Council of Governors. Among the contestants who the website cited were Nairobi County Johnson Sakaja, Siaya governor James Orengo, Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru and Nakuru County governor Susan Kihika.

In a speedy response, Sakaja quickly distanced himself from the poll, making it clear that he’s not vying for the position.
