- He told his supporters to ignore those saying his bid will divide votes in the city.
- Mr Kenneth accused Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero of misusing county funds.
Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Peter Kenneth has told off his critics in the Jubilee Party, saying they will not get an opportunity to rig him out in the August 8 elections.
Mr Kenneth, who spoke on Wednesday with a group of supporters in Makadara, said he is happy that he was rigged out in the Jubilee nominations because he now has an easy task to win the Nairobi governor’s seat without being affiliated with a particular party.
“I thank God they did that so that I may leave the Jubilee party, I am now more comfortable to seek this seat as an independent candidate,” he said.
Mr Kenneth said the outcome of the nominations, which he said were marred by irregularities, presented him an opportunity to get supporters from all major political parties.
“I'm an independent candidate with an independent mind and therefore my supporters are free to elect a president of their choice,” he said.
