Sonko Dumps Raila, Joins Deputy President Ruto’s Camp

Former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has defected from Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya alliance and joined Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza camp.

The DP in a message on Saturday welcomed Sonko to the Kenya Kwanza team.

“We welcome Mike Sonko to Kenya Kwanza, the winning team,” Ruto wrote in a message on Facebook on Saturday, July 30, 2022.

The move comes two days after Sonko said he will not back the ODM candidate Abdulswamad Nassir for the Mombasa governor seat.

Sonko claims he has made a deal with Deputy President William Ruto that has detailed a list of seven positions he will get from the Kenya Kwanza government.

The agreement, Sonko claims, has brought into the mix Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, who is eyeing the Nairobi governor seat and UDA Mombasa governor candidate Hassan Omar.

In consequence, the DP has promised the ex-governor one Cabinet Secretary, three principal secretaries and four ambassadorial posts if he wins the August 9, polls.

In Nairobi, Sonko claimed he will get two CECs and three chief officers’ posts.

Omar on the other hand has allegedly offered Sonko three CECs positions, and three chief officers.

The ex-governor revealed that he will now be campaigning for Sakaja for the Nairobi Governor seat and drop his bid for the Mombasa governor seat in favour of Omar.

Sonko had earlier endorsed Igathe for the Nairobi governor seat.
