Sonko denies appointing Simon Mbugua as Deputy Governor

A letter has been doing rounds on social media purporting Sonko had appointed Mbugua.

A letter which has been doing rounds on social media showed that Sonko had appointed Mbugua to replace former Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe.

Mbugua is currently an MP in the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) and a former Kamkunji Member of Parliament.

Pulselive.co.ke has since established that the letter is fake after contacting Sonko's office.

The governor himself took to his social media page to deny he had appointed Mbugua as his new deputy governor.

"I wish to inform the public that attached letter is fake. I have not nominated my Deputy yet. I'm still consulting the Party leadership over the same," Sonko stated.
