The Nairobi contest attracts a lot of attention because the city is responsible for a big percentage of Kenya’s GDP. Whoever wins the Nairobi Governor seat has been tipped to be the third most powerful man in the country.
Both Kidero and Waititu have put up elaborate campaigns, with Kidero having this presence felt mostly on billboards around the city. Waititu, in collaboration with Sonko and Shebesh also have a good number of billboards which have been complemented with TV ads.
Evans Kidero however has an edge on social media. Unlike Waititu, he has regularly updated Facebook and Twitter accounts, to add on his impressive campaign website. Using this media, Kidero has released a series of posters showing his vision for Nairobi, and below are some of them.
