Muslim clerics endorse Kenneth for Nairobi gubernatorial job

Muslim leaders have endorsed Peter Kenneth to vie for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat on Jubilee Party ticket.

The Muslim clergymen said Mr Kenneth is the best candidate for the job on the account of his development record while he was serving as the MP for Gatanga.

They said unlike his competitors within the Jubilee Party, Mr Kenneth has the right qualifications and the zeal for the job.

On his part, Mr Kenneth has said he will decentralize services and revenue collection to 17 units and deal with the issue of cartels, corruption, congestion and garbage as well as making Eastleigh a 24-hour economy.

The former MP also accused his main competitor in the Jubilee Party, Nairobi Senator, Mike Sonko, of hooliganism while at the same time blaming Nairobi Governor Dr Evans Kidero of complete failure during his tenure.
