Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has tough choices to make following the resignation of his deputy Polycarp Igathe.

This being the first time that a sitting Deputy Governor has resigned from office, opinion is divided on what next for Sonko and the county, but either way, the choices are tough.

Through his Twitter handle, Nairobi based lawyer Donald Kipkorir offered free advice to Sonko, telling him to pick Agnes Kagure or Joan Mwangi as his deputy.

Prior to election, several people had expressed interest in Igathe’s position including Denis Waweru and Bishop Margaret Wanjiru.
