Miguna Miguna: I’m Nairobi’s next governor

By DAVID KWALIMWA

The race to become next Governor of Nairobi County is getting crowded with each passing day.

This follows the expression of interest in the position by former advisor to CORD leader Raila Odinga, Miguna Miguna.

Miguna, a barrister based in Canada who doubles up as an advocate in the High Court of Kenya, made the revelation on Jeff Koinange Live talk show on Wednesday night.

“Why not? If Kenyans give me a chance I can clean up Nairobi,” Miguna said.

The outspoken political analyst also took time to blast some of his opponents who have also expressed interest in the seat.

“Kidero will not be re-elected for a second time, Waiguru (Anne) asked for lighter duties when she resigned as Cabinet Secretary. I am not sure being Governor of Nairobi is an easier task,” said Miguna who unsuccessfully vied for a Parliamentary seat in 2007.

Other politicians reported to be interested in the seat are current Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko, Dagorretti lawmaker Dennis Waweru and former legislator Margaret Wanjiru.
