Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has hinted at a major political comeback in 2022.
Speaking over the weekend during a fundraising ceremony in aid of Wikoteng’ Secondary School in Asumbi in Homa Bay County, Kidero ruled out running for the Homa Bay gubernatorial seat as he is eyeing “a bigger one”.
Kidero was responding to reports that he was looking to unseat Governor Cyprian Awiti after the High Court annulled his election.
“Those who have been saying that I am seeking to unseat Governor Awiti if a by-election ensues must now desist because that is not true. I am going for a bigger seat,” said Kidero.
Though he did not disclose which seat he was eyeing, Kidero hit out at Mike Sonko saying his successor has failed to transform the city.
“We shall restore Nairobi to its former glory because those in leadership have failed,” he said.
His sentiments were echoed by former Nairobi County Chief of Staff George Wainaina who accused Governor Sonko of “underperformance.”
“We have no alternative but to kick out Mr Sonko because he has failed Nairobi residents,” he said.
Kidero also hailed the pact between opposition leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“The handshake between the Nasa leader and the President is the best thing the leaders did for this country because it is uniting all of us,” said Dr Kidero.
