In a Facebook post,Sonko stated:
“Good Morning Great people of Nairobi City County?
My critics say I am not a PhD. holder but that will not stop me from serving you great people.
Once elected, I will bring on board technocrats with whom am going to work with in policy making, implementation and pushing for the county’s development and economic agenda.
I am and has always been a team player who will delegate, assign, appoint professionals to run the affairs of the county.
To that effect, plans are underway to make investor CHRIS KIRUBI as our county’s Chief Economic Advisor.
Now the big question is: WHO do you prefer to be my Deputy Governor between:
A: JIMNA MBARU
