Political analyst Ambrose Weda has predicted no end to the wait of Nairobi residents, as they await their governor Mike Sonko's nomination of a deputy.
The county boss has repeatedly promised to pick a deputy only make a u-turn later, with the commentator now observing that he will go it alone to the end.
Speaking on Wednesday he observed that Sonko might have looked at the neighbouring Kiambu and on seeing the ongoing wrangles between governor Ferdinand Waititu and his deputy James Nyoro, decided to go it alone.
According to Weda, also an advocate of the High Court, seeing how Nyoro has toppled Waititu who is facing corruption charges, Sonko will not pick a deputy, fearing a similar ending, since he too is facing similar charges.
"He must have looked at Kiambu and now that he has seen how Waititu's deputy has behaved, he will not name a deputy," he said on KBC English Service's The Big Conversation show.
The former Sony Sugar board chair also opined that Sonko's nature as a man who hardly accepts criticism and corrections is the other reason why he will keep Kenyans waiting until the very end.
"He wants a situation where even if he is kicked out of office he will later come back and proceed. He also doesn't like opposition," he added.
Sonko's vow to name a deputy on Friday last week as well flopped, at a time when he is being accused of engaging in graft and failing to remit billions in taxes to the national government.
