Here is why I could ditch Jubilee for Cord – Sonko

Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko could be headed to the Cord coalition if Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is named the candidate for the presidential seat in the 2017 general elections.

Senator Sonko said he is ready to support Mr Musyoka if he clinches the coalition’s presidential ticket.

He made the remarks during the burial of John King’ola,e father of Mavoko MP Patrick Makau over the weekend.

“It is on record, there is no other politician who has walked with Kalonzo like me in support of him being the president. People are telling me to come back home, but if you want me to do that then Kalonzo has to be the flag bearer of Cord.

Apewe bendera sahii na sasa hivi nitahama I support him,” said Sonko.

The Wiper Party leader has in the past called on Senator Sonko to ditch the Jubilee coalition and return “home”.
