Chris Kirubi turns down appointment as Nairobi Chief Economic Advisor.
On Saturday morning, Mike Sonko commented on his Facebook page and said his critics say he’s not a PhD. holder but that would not stop from serving the people of Nairobi as a Governor. Once elected, Mike Sonko said he would bring on board technocrats with whom he is going to work with in policy making, implementation and pushing for Nairobi County’s development and economic agenda.
“I am and has always been a team player who will delegate, assign, and 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,” Sonko’s post read in part.
However Chris Kirubi in reaction to Sonko’s facebook post said he is not interested in the job and asked Sonko to keep it. “I am not interested in politics. I work for international organisations and I have no time for Sonko. Let him keep his job,” Chris Kirubi who is associated with the new Two Rivers Mall, Capital FM, International Life House, Nairobi Bottlers Ltd, Haco industries among others said.
Sonko is fighting out for the Jubilee Party ticket against former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth and Bishop Margaret Wanjiru.
