Deputy President William Ruto is said to favor Eugene Wamalwa over Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko.
Leaders from the Western region have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto to endorse the CS.
Gatanga MP Humphrey Njuguna Kimani and the Athi Water Services Board Chairman Wachira Keen also joined the bandwagon fronting the Water CS for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.
The two leaders were speaking in Gatanga constituency during the commissioning of CDF funded projects.
Wachira went on to say that Mt Kenya community is receptive to other communities and that’s why Wamalwa is the best bet to unite Kenyans.
The CS said that he will make the decision if he will run for the seat in due course.
This turn of event has miffed Sonko who reads malice from the Jubilee leaders. Loud murmurs abound that the mercurial is now angling to join Cord if the Jubilee operatives don’t continue pushing him to the edge.
