Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has dismissed the unveiling of Polycarp Igathe as Senator Mike Sonko’s running mate, saying it is another Jubilee Party project that is doomed to fail.
This comes after Deputy President William Ruto backed duo describing it as the solution to the problems facing the capital.
But in a quick rejoinder, Dr Kidero, while addressing media at AIC Milimani church on Thursday, said he was not bothered by the combination adding that Jubilee Party has had many projects before which failed to take off and instead became croppers.
“The issue of governorship has disturbed and bothered the Jubilee team. They came with the phrase, ‘liwe liwalo, inyeshe ifanye nini’ yesterday but they have tried many projects before which have been croppers.
“They started with Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa which did not take off, they then came with Peter Kenneth which also did not take and they also had another project involving Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru which also never took off,” said Dr Kidero.
Dr Kidero said that the ruling regime was just desperate and were trying to fulfill what the Constitution stipulates about holders of office saying that education is not about certificates but what remains thereafter.
