Nairobi Senator Johson Sakaja found himself on the receiving end after he posted a tweet saying lawyer Miguna Miguna will not become deputy governor.
Miguna was on Wednesday nominated by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to be the county’s deputy governor.
In a letter to the Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi, Sonko says Miguna meets all the requirements provided for in the constitution.
“I hereby forward my nominee, Lawyer Miguna Miguna to undergo full vetting process and approval by the County Assembly for the position of Deputy Governor,” reads part of the letter.
Reacting to the nomination, Senator Sakaja said, “Miguna will not become the Deputy Governor of Nairobi. Take that to the bank.”
Here are some of the comments by Kenyans who were not happy with the senator’s statement.
@araptaru said, “Because you want to see Sonko fail so that you become governor. You don't rise by wishing bad unto others.”
@geraldngaopk said, “Give us a break. Your Opinion Doesn't Count.”
Felix John said, “We citizens as the architects of the Republic and Declaration of independence, the magnificent words of the Constitution act as a promissory note for each citizen. Miguna Miguna will serve as the DG, we won't accept marginalization as NRB youths!”
@kenney_mboya said, “Why not?? I think you're part of the problem only Miguna can fix Nairobi.”
@smutiga78 wrote “We know that you fear him coz you already joined the cartels? Recall his warning to cartels during debate?”
@francis1muthui said, “The cartels are now shaking Miguna Miguna please accept the opportunity with Sonko you will dismantle the cartels and make 047 better the Revolution is just starting @SakajaJohnson @OleItumbi endeleeni kupiga kelele.”
