Speaking at St Stephen Anglican Church in Jogoo Road, Kenneth affirmed that he would not concede defeat to the senator even if his appeal is overruled by Jubilee's tribunal.The former 2013 presidential hopeful alleged that the Nairobi senator tool residents from Machakos and took them around polling stations in Nairobi to ensure they voted."The entire process was a total farce, it is not yet over until it is over; we are waiting for the decision by the appeal tribunal on Tuesday after which once through we shall make the next move," Kenneth stated.

Sonko garnered 138,185 against Kenneth’s 62,504 to emerge victorious during the nominations.

Meanwhile, Bishop Margret Wanjiru has now claimed that they had a deal with Sonko after the nominations."I want to categorically state that we had an MoU with Mike Sonko that whoever wins the nominations would pick the other as the running mate. This is a deal he has no otherwise but to honour," the Bishop affirmed.
