Uhuru denies endorsing Kenneth for top city job
President Uhuru Kenyatta has refuted claims that he has endorsed former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth to fly the Jubilee Party ticket in the Nairobi gubernatorial race.
Kenneth is embroiled on a vicious battle with flamboyant Nairobi senator Mike Sonko and former Starehe MP Bishop Margaret Wanjiru to win the party ticket in the primaries slated for Friday this week.

In a statement to newsrooms, the Jubilee Party secretariat said that President Kenyatta had no preferred candidates for any elective seat.
“Our attention has been drawn to media reports suggesting that his excellency the President in his role as party leader has indicated support for a candidate in the Nairobi gubernatorial race. These reports are untrue,” the party said in a statement signed by secretary general Raphael Tuju.
ODM postpones Nakuru West nomination exercise
ODM Nakuru Town West Constituency primaries have been postponed indefinitely after the names of two parliamentary aspirants missed in the ballot paper.
Party members had as early as 6.00am thronged the branch offices located in Kaptembwa Ward but party officials, led by branch chairman Peter ole Osono, announced that the exercise had been postponed after the anomaly was noted.
Of the eight parliamentary aspirants for the Nakuru Town West seat on an ODM ticket, the names of Erick Ogada and Luka Ogetti were missing.
Ole Osono said that an election official has been moving around in town demanding bribes from candidates but was quick to point out that the party will not condone such behaviour.
