“In 2017, the good people of Nairobi elected a man of dubious provenance because they said, he was a man of the people. We know the results of that emotional choice,” Mutua said.
The Spokesperson for the Raila Odinga Presidential Campaign Secretariat, Professor Makau Mutua, has advised Nairobi residents “to vote with your heads and not with their hearts” in the August polls.
Mutua urged the resident of Nairobi not to repeat the same mistake they did in the 2017 Nairobi gubernatorial election that saw former Governor Mike Sonko elected immediately after the debate ended.
Mutua belongs to the Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya Alliance wing, whose candidate in the Nairobi Governor race is Polycarp Igathe, faced off with Kenya Kwanza Alliance candidate and Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja.
During the debate, the candidates were grilled on issues ranging from governance, leadership and Integrity, transport, and living standards in the City.
