Sonko beats Peter Kenneth in the Nairobi governor race.
Sonko beats Peter Kenneth in the Nairobi governor race. Senator Mike Sonko Mbuvi has beaten rival Peter Kenneth for the Jubilee ticket, securing his slot in the ballot for the Nairobi governor race, where he garnered 138,185 votes, while Kenneth came second with 62,504 votes and Bishop Margaret Wanjiru earned 7,654 votes.
Peter Kenneth called for a repeat of the nominations, saying the process was not free and fair.
“I disassociate myself from the sham election that Jubilee Party purported to have and demand the same elections be nullified,” he said in a statement on Thursday.
The former Gatanga MP alleged that some people were allowed to vote despite their names missing in the registers while others were denied the chance.
Senator Mike Sonko Mbuvi will therefore face off with incumbent Governor Evans Kidero in the August 8 polls.
