Jubilee sends urgent order to Sonko after Miguna's nomination

Exclusively speaking to Pulselive.co.ke

The ruling party, through National Assembly Leader Aden Duale, stated that it was not in support of Sonko's decision due to four reasons.

According to Duale, Miguna did not meet the legal requirements to be nominated for the Deputy Governor's position.

"One, he is not a member of the Jubilee Party. Two, we have told Sonko that the only time he can take a name to that Assembly (County) is after consulting with the party leader - the President," Duale told Pulselive.co.ke in a telephone interview.

"He is not the choice of Jubilee by his character, we cannot even allow him to join our party. Even his citizenship is in question. How do you become a Deputy Governor if you are not a Kenyan?" Duale stated.

Miguna is yet to respond on whether he would accept the rather surprise nomination.
