On July 1, 2017 Nairobi’s first gubernatorial debate gave Kenyans a chance to know the leaders they will put in power to represent them come August general elections.
However the debate became a battle field where the candidates argued to defend themselves and sell their visions to Kenyans across the country who were watching.
Miguna Miguna and Evans Kidero went ham on each other trying to make their points by completely disgracing and accusing each other on the way things are in the country.
Sadly Jubilee nominated candidate Mike Sonko was the worst participant in the debate because he could not express himself accurately.
Miguna Miguna went savage on both the candidates stressing on the fact that he is the only candidate capable of being in the seat both politically and academically.
Sonko was badly flagged because his answers were not exactly answering the questions he was receiving from his opponents.
Now Sonko’s daughter wrote an encouraging message on her social media page to support his father and asked the youths to see beyond academic excellence and fluency of the language his father’s opponents used to beat him in the debate.
She wrote: “To My fellow Youths , Lets not be blinded by men in suits with imported English .We are the future and we need a leader who stands with us by all times.We need a leader who fights for us ,understands us and Moreso walks with us.Mike Sonko has been the only leader providing employment for the youths wengine walikua wapi ??…Sonko has been for us and forever with us”
