I am a poor debater, Sonko concedes after drab show at TV debate

Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Mike Sonko has conceded that he is a poor debater.

Sonko, however, claimed that his leadership skills and development record is second to none, which is what he should be judged on come August 8.


“Roads will not be constructed via debates,” the Senator explained in a message to his one million plus followers on Facebook.

The message was accompanied by a six minute video clip highlighting repair works being undertaken on city roads.

Nairobi News could not immediately establish if the politician facilitated the repairs.

Sonko’s defence on his poor debating skills comes after he was roasted by netizens for his dull performance at the Nairobi gubernatorial debate.

He was joined on the platform by his opponents incumbent Evans Kidero, Peter Kenneth and Miguna Miguna who all appeared more at ease articulating their agenda.

The popular politician, however, said that he would be in charge of the “political side” of things whilst his deputy Polycarp Igathe would be in charge of the day to day management of the city.
