I will have to work with Sonko, says Shebesh

Nairobi woman representative Rachel Shebesh has vowed to put aside her personal issues and work with Jubilee gubernatorial candidate Mike Sonko if elected.

Shebesh who was speaking in an interview on Citizen TV said there is need for the elected leaders to remain united during and after elections.

This even as Shebesh was part of the Peter Kenneth campaign team that was battling Team Nairobi led by Sonko and senatorial aspirant Johnson Sakaja.

“We had our issues with the senator, we even had our issues with Kidero, they are behind me solidly and I don’t give them time anymore because they are a waste of energy and they don’t get my focus. So as I told you I am focused, we will deliver Nairobi we will work as a team,” said Shebesh.


She added that she will bring on board Nairobians who voted Kenneth and even the aspirant himself if possible.

Shebesh during her tenure as woman representative clashed with both senator Sonko and governor Evans Kidero.

She urged that all winners bring on board the losers to ensure that the party gets support from all party members.

“The way we deal with Peter Kenneth is fundamental to how we move forward he cannot be ignored neither can the vote he got be ignored neither can the votes he got be ignored and neither can the campaigns he did be ignored and neither can the goodwill he commands in Nairobi be ignored (sic),” said Shebesh.

She added that winners should stop chest-thumping and focus on bringing everyone together as Nairobi is fifty-fifty having supporters of both the ruling party and the opposition.
