Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi has poured cold water on the nomination of lawyer Miguna Miguna as the new deputy governor of Nairobi County.

Here are tweets of Nairobians who are waiting for Dr Miguna to break his silence on his nomination.

Speaking to Citizen TV on phone, Sonko on Thursday evening said he has confidence that Miguna - his political rival and fiercest critics - is the man with what it takes to fight and defeat the cartels. "I know that Miguna is the number one "anti-cartel", said Sonko.

Previously, Miguna had termed Sonko as an "illiterate drug baron" who can not govern Nairobi. Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been ranked dead last in a performance ranking the three Kenyan cities; Nairobi, Kisumu and Mombasa.

"Mr. Mike Sonko and I have not spoken, met or communicated since our gubernatorial debate in July 2017".

"I can assure you the nominee's name wouldn't see the light of the day and you can take that to the bank, we cannot have a deputy governor who doesn't belong to Jubilee party", said Guyo.

Former Nairobi Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe seems to be enjoying life at the moment. I will not comment on malicious information, material or cheap propaganda circulating in the social media.

Sonko's office, the Nairobi County government, has however dismissed a similar letter in March, that claimed the appointment of East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP Simon Mbugua as Deputy Governor.

On his part, the Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja dismissed the nomination.

The position of deputy governor fell vacant in January, when Polycarp Igathe resigned, citing his inability to win Sonko's trust to manage the city.
