Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s senior advisor Miguna Miguna on Wednesday broke the leash and attacked his competitors for the Nairobi governorship race.
In an interview on Citizen TV’s JK Live, Miguna hit out at Jubilee aspirants Peter Kenneth and Mike Sonko and Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero, saying they are not the best people to lead the county.
The Kenyan author and columnist noted that Peter Kenneth was guilty of orchestrated the collapse of Kenya Re, a company he managed between 1997 and 2002.
He further noted that the 2013 presidential candidate did not have the requisite academic background to run Nairobi County, arguing that he flopped in his A level.
Miguna rubbished evidence produced by the show host Jeff Koinange showing that Kenneth had actually excelled in school and even attended University terming the documents as fake.
The outspoken author further raised concerns over Kenneth’s loyalty to Nairobi questioning his decision to run for Gatanga MP in 2002 despite being born and raised in Nairobi.
“He ran away from Nairobi and went to be MP in Gatanga, where he did nothing for the locals. He was also assistant minister from 2003 to 2007 but did nothing for the people of Nairobi,” he said.
Miguna also called out Mike Sonko, terming him a thief who should not be entrusted with a leadership position.
“Sonko has admitted severally to having been a thief and a prisoner at Shimo La Tewa. Why would we need such a person as governor?” he questioned.
On Kidero, Miguna put into question his credibility, linking him to the collapse of Mumias Sugar and perpetuating corruption in Nairobi County Government.
“Kidero has looted Ksh200 billion in Nairobi since taking office in 2013. He was also behind the collapse of Mumias Sugar. He is the dean of corruption,” he said.
Miguna Miguna noted that he was best placed to ensure development in Nairobi saying he is not entangled in any corruption scandal despite working in the office of the Prime Minister during the Grand Coalition government.
