'We will work together with Tim Wanyonyi,' Sakaja says on Nairobi Governorship

  • Speaking on Wednesday after receiving his UDA nomination ticket, Sakaja said he will work with his Wanyonyi whom he described as his "long time friend" to deliver the dream he had for Nairobi. 

Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Johnson Sakaja now claims he is working with Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi to achieve desired changes in the City. 

Speaking on Wednesday after receiving his UDA nomination ticket, Sakaja said he will work with his Wanyonyi whom he described as his "long time friend" to deliver the dream he had for Nairobi. 

"We will definitely work together, our teams are in discussion and in due course, we will announce how we will achieve that," Sakaja replied when asked about the possibility of working with Wanyonyi.

Wanyonyi was seeking the Azimio La Umoja Governor nomination ticket in Nairobi but stepped down to support the coalition's preferred candidate Polycarp Igathe. 

Sakaja said leadership is not about positions but about influence adding that they will work together to achieve what they think is the best for Nairobians. 

Among the key issues, Sakaja says he will tackle once he assumes power is the high level of poverty in the city. 

"There are more children out of school in Nairobi than in Turkana, and one of my main things will be to start a school feeding program in all public primary schools, those who are saying it can't be done, we will show them how it is done," he said. 

Sakaja who will be facing off with Polycarp Igathe of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party, acknowledged they have worthy competitors but that he was ready for the duel ahead.

On Tuesday, Sakaja named Absa Bank Kenya Ltd Chief Operating Officer James Njoroge Muchiri as his running mate in the race for the Nairobi governorship race ahead of the August polls
