Nairobi Governor Kidero endorses Uhuru -VIDEO

Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero appears to have thrown his weight behind President Uhuru Kenyatta as he seeks to retain his seat come the 2017 General Election.

Dr Kidero offered the thinly veiled endorsement to President Kenyatta during the opening of the Nairobi International Trade Fair at Jamhuri Park on Wednesday.

“We hope that you will be here with us in 2017,” said the governor, after thanking the president for being there this year and the past years.

To be fair though, Dr Kidero did not openly root for President Kenyatta’s reelection although observers will read in between the line.

The Nairobi governor has, however, previously been accused of cozying up to the head of state.
