Sakaja quits Nairobi’s governor race, eyes Sonko’s seat
Nominated Jubilee MP Johnson Sakaja has quit the race for Nairobi’s gubernatorial seat.
Instead of staying in the crowded field for the top seat, Mr Sakaja has opted to try his luck at representing the city county in the Senate.
On Thursday, he presented his nomination papers to the Jubilee Party secretariat at Pangani in Nairobi to run for Senate seat.
The race for Jubilee Party’s tickets for Nairobi governorship is crowded with more than three aspirants now remaining in the field.
They are former presidential candidate Peter Kenneth, Dagoretti Soutn MP Dennis Waweru and Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko.
