Governor Sonko says he is not moved by Igathe’s resignation

Nairobi county governor mike Sonko Mbuvi now says he is not ready for any talks with his outgoing deputy governor Polycarp Igathe. Sonko while addressing members of Nairobi county assembly in workshop held in Kiambu County said will engage his MCAs in running the city for the remainder of the period.

The resignation of former Vivo energy boss Polycarp Igathe as Nairobi county deputy governor still remains a puzzle to many.


However his boss Mike Sonko now says he is not shaken by Igathe’s resignation and that as a county they will forge forward in implementing his manifesto to the Nairobians.


Speaking at a workshop in Kiambu County on Thursday, Sonko said Mr. Igathe’s resignation came as a shocker to him but it was “influenced by personal choice.”


The Nairobi Ward reps vowed to support the governor to help make his term a success. Mwaura’s sentiments were echoed by Nairobi West MCA, Maurice Otieno, who was elected on ODM ticket.

According to Nairobi county assembly chief whip Chege Mwaura they will not relent to support governor Sonko in his quest to deliver his promises to the electorates of the county.


This comes even after a section of Nairobi county leaders backed the governor saying there is no la cuna if a deputy governor resigns.


Igathe resigned from his post on January 12 citing frustrations because he ‘failed to earn the Governor’s trust’, in what is blamed on strained working relationship with Sonko.
