‘Team Nairobi’ is a bunch of disorganized and incompetent individuals, says Kidero

‘Team Nairobi’ is a bunch of disorganized and incompetent individuals, says Kidero

Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has yet again taken a swipe at a group of Nairobi Jubilee Party gubernatorial aspirants calling themselves ‘team Nairobi’.

In an apparent attack to Senator Mike Sonko and Bishop Margaret Wanjiru, Kidero described ‘Team Nairobi’ as a bunch of incompetent individuals out to dupe the city residents to vote them in office without any development agenda.

He said his Jubilee party rivals have nothing to offer the city residents but are busy selfishly sharing positions on an ethnic basis.

“They are a bunch of disorganised individuals and unfit to hold office,” Kidero declared.

Team Nairobi, combines of Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko, Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru, his TNA nominated counterpart Johnson Sakaja and former Starehe MP Bishop Margaret Wanjiru.

Kidero further alleged that the team is out to scatter his efforts to weed out corrupt cartels

But in an indirect reference to Deputy President William Ruto, Kidero told a congregation at Calvary Covenant Centre in Komarock in Nairobi that the political sponsors of the ‘team Nairobi’ have questionable financial muscles.

“They have made enough billions and now they want to run for office to protect cartels at city hall. This because I have properly dealt with corrupt cartels that existed in the former city council,” Kidero said yesterday.

On Friday, Team Nairobi while touring the parts of the Nairobi Central Business district announced they that had already settled on its candidate and deputy for the city’s gubernatorial seat to face off with incumbent Evans Kidero in the August General Election.

The ‘team Nairobi’ is alleged to be allied to the Deputy President William Ruto and have ganged up to appoint one of them to run  on a Jubilee Party ticket, thereby locking out President Uhuru Kenyatta’s alleged favourite Peter Kenneth.

Peter Kenneth, a former Gatanga MP is supported by Nairobi Jubilee MPs and a section of the Nairobi MCAs.

Yesterday as Kidero campaigned against ‘team Nairobi’ a faction of it accompanied Deputy President William Ruto to Christ is the Answer Ministries (CITAM) Church in Karen.

Later, the group that comprised of Nairobi Johnson Sakaja (Nominated), Dennis Waweru (Dagoretti South), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South) and nominated senator Joy Gwendo accompanied the Deputy President to a ‘Nyama choma’ joint in Dagoretti south.

The meeting sending strong signals that DP be backing the faction headed by Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko,  Bishop Margaret Wanjiru and Nominated MCA Wangui Ng’ang’a.

After the meal with the DP, Nominated MP Johnstone Sakaja was quick to dismiss the meeting of being political.

“First of all, I must say this meeting was not political but just lunch with our Deputy President,” Sakaja stated.

However, a source has told X news that ‘team Nairobi’ met Deputy President to brief him on the engagements among themselves and whether they had arrived on a formidable line-up to take on the opposition candidate Governor Evans Kidero.

The source disclosed to X news that during the meeting the DP was informed that the group had arrived on Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko to be its candidate and deputised by either Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru or former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru.

Mr Ruto was also informed that Nominated MP Johnstone Sakaja was settled to run for Senator and nominated MCA Wangui Ng’ang’a as Women Representative candidate.

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria who was present at the meeting at Jojen restaurant is also said to have endorsed the candidates together with Nominated Senator Joy Gwendo.

Even as team Nairobi inked the deal, another Jubilee party Peter Kenneth yesterday said he was ready for talks to form a united Jubilee that can front a single candidate to take on Kidero in the August 8th polls.

“We need to tolerate each other. We need to understand that for us in Jubilee we’ve said it’s either consensus [or] if it doesn’t work we go for the nomination. We are ready for it,” said Kenneth told worshippers at Redeem Church Bahati.
