Miguna Miguna 'accepts' Sonko's surprise nomination

President Uhuru Kenyatta the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and Governor Mike Sonko during a public function

Regional Lender Equity Bank has made several senior management changes to its Kenyan and regional operations, a move that has seen former Nairobi County Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe return to the corporate sphere, after only eight months in political leadership.

One of Miguna's lawyers Nelson Havi, told local television, Citizen TV, that he would advise his client to accept the nomination.

The MCAs, drawn from Jubilee party, noted that the self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) general is not a member of he ruling party, and is therefore, not eligible to fill the position. He is covering up his mistakes by trying to divert attention.

Murathe's admission could be an indicator that Sonko has fallen out of favour with top Jubilee officials including the Party's boss President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto. His nomination of Miguna is of no significance.

He said Miguna meets all the requirements provided for in the constitution to be his deputy.

Murathe asked how Miguna would come into the country. No plane can carry him, unless it is Canadian.

"Sakaja also tweeted", Miguna will not become the Deputy Governor of Nairobi. "On this matter, the governor is on his own", Mr Sakaja said.

"In regard to the Supreme Court advisory to the appointment of a deputy governor, upon the seat falling vacant, I hereby forward my nominee Lawyer Miguna Miguna to undergo full vetting process and approval by the County assembly for the position", Sonko said in the letter dated May 16, 2018.

Ms Elachi denied that she had formally received the letter communicating Miguna's nomination but acknowledged it had been delivered to her office by Miguna's lawyer, Cliff Ombeta.
