Nairobi County boss Johson Sakaa has revealed details of his private meeting with Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party leader Raila Odinga. The governor confirmed having held a meeting with the ODM leader and his people. According to Sakaja, in the meeting, Raila requested that Sakaja rewards his Azimio people with CEC slots.
Raila and his team reportedly wanted a total of five slots out of the available ten slots.
However, after negotiations with the governor, Sakaja decided to reward them with only three CEC slots
He was speaking on a local media house on Tuesday where he revealed the details of his meeting with Raila
“During my meeting with Raila and his team, they requested five CEC slots but we agreed on three. Hence, out of the ten, we had to distribute across to ensure one region is not favoured,” Sakaja said.
It should be noted that awarding of CEC slots was one of the reasons why a section of Kenya Kwanza MCAs had issues with the governor. While Sakaja was after uniting the city regardless of the political divide, a section of MCAs wanted him to only consider Kenya Kwanza loyalists.
