As he quit Jubilee Party to vie as an Independent candidate for the Nairobi governorship race, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth attacked the party’s Election Board.

He said it conducted a sham exercise, contrary to aspirant’s hopes.

“The Jubilee nominations were a sham; they were not free, fair or credible. On August 8th we expect an independent and credible election where the voice of the people will be heard,” he said, adding that his Independent candidate decision was much bigger than the just concluded nominations.

”Nairobi is a great city, it is crying for leadership we cannot afford another second of bad leadership. Over the last 4 years Governor Kidero has collected almost 100 billion shillings. This works out to almost 5 million shillings of our money going down the drain every day yet our taps run dry and garbage fills our streets. There is nothing to show for it.”

“This money could have transformed Nairobi. What has Governor Kidero done with our money? And what has the Senator Mike Sonko done to protect our money from misuse?” he wondered, Friday.

If elected governor, Kenneth said all Nairobians would feel the full impact of the county resources.

“The transformation will be across the County, it will be visible.”

He promised Nairobians a new scale of service delivery, as he explained below:

• In 90 days the garbage on the streets, on the roads and in our markets will be gone. The streets will be clean, sewers will be unblocked drainage will flow. And it will stay this way as long as I am Governor.
• In 18 months I will remove the 16 roundabouts that cause unbearable traffic jams, reduce congestion on our roads and make it possible for everyone in the city, those who are walking and those who are driving to move around easily and affordably.
 • In 3 years I will upgrade County facilities: markets, schools etc; renovate existing facilities, build and furnish much needed classrooms and ensure that our children can learn in a comfortable and neat environment.

“My principles and values towards public service remain the same; I believe in results; I work with integrity and most importantly I work with and for the people,” Kenneth who also vied as president in 2013 elections, said.
