Miguna fights to claim the Donald Trump underdog tag in Nairobi race

Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Miguna Miguna wants to identify his campaign for the Nairobi gubernatorial with that of American president-elect Donald Trump.

Initially considered to have a dim chance in the presidential election, Mr Trump confounded pundits and opinion polls to pull off an unlikely win against Hillary Clinton on Wednesday.

Lawyer Miguna Miguna want to portray himself as a similar underdog in the Nairobi gubernatorial race, and is evoking his combustive, bare-knuckle character to draw comparisons with the billionaire Mr Trump.

He took to Twitter on Wednesday where he slammed Nairobians who had initially likened him to Mr Trump, but have since changed positions to say Senator Mike Sonko was more likely to be a Kenyan Trump.

Here are some of Mr Miguna’s tweets.

Nairobians went on to support Mr Miguna’s claim, terming him as Kenya’s Donald Trump.

Others drew the comparison in favour of Sonko.
