Amid cheers from the crowd at St Stephen’s Jogoo Road that was assembled for a prayer day ahead of Labour Day celebrations, Atwoli has also indicated that there was a deliberate ploy to oust former Gatanga Constituency Member of Parliament Peter Kenneth from the Nairobi gubernatorial race.

“Kenneth, you should have known the game that goes under here. No one; even Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto were off that day,” Atwoli said.

He added: “I am surprised that people find interest in people like Sonko. The poor chose him because of the perception that he is servant. He is out to widen the gap between the rich and the poor. He has so many poor youth around him.”

In a rejoinder, however, Atwoli has criticised incumbent Evans Kidero, accusing him of ignoring the low class earners in the city.

Atwoli, in reference to the Kibera slum and Industrial area residents, has said that Kidero, since being elected, has abandoned them, since they have remained poor despite having garnered thousands of votes from those areas.

Meanwhile, Dr Evans Kidero has been handed a direct nomination by the Raila Odinga led Orange Democratic Movement ODM to defend his seat in August polls.

Last week Thursday during the Jubilee Party primaries, Mike Sonko beat Peter Kenneth by garnering 138,185 votes against Peter Kenneth’s 62,504 votes. Sonko will be facing Kidero in the August polls.
