City tycoon Chris Kirubi has dismissed a job offer by gubernatorial aspirant Mike Sonko to join his team of advisors.
Kirubi said on Sunday that he has never met nor spoken to the Nairobi senator.
“How do you offer a job to someone you have never met or spoken to? I don’t know this man neither do I have his number,” Kirubi posed.
On Saturday, Sonko said should he be elected governor he would bring on board technocrats with whom he is going to work with in policy making, implementation and pushing for Nairobi County’s development and economic agenda.
Among these technorats is the billionaire businessman Chris Kirubi who would take up the position of Nairobi’s Chief Economic Advisor.
“I am and has always been a team player who will delegate, assign, appoint professionals to run the affairs of the county. To that effect, plans are underway to make investor CHRIS KIRUBI as our county’s Chief Economic Advisor,” wrote Sonko on Facebook.
However, Kirubi turned down the political prospect saying he is not interested.
“I am not interested in politics, I work for International organisations and I have no time for Sonko’s job offer,” said CK.
