Jimmy Kibaki Tells Nyeri Residents Who They Should Vote For in the August 9th General Election

Just a few weeks after holding a consultative meeting with One Kenya Alliance Co-Principals in what seemed as a cordial move aimed at joining the political faction, Jimmy Kibaki has dropped a declaration on who he will be supporting in the August 9th general elections.

Addressing mammoths of Nyeri residents, Jimmy Kibaki articulated that he will supporting Thuo Mathenge (The New Democrats National Chairman) in the Nyeri gubernatorial race. He called upon the residents of Nyeri to vote for him in the forthcoming general election.

When asked on whether he will be Thuo Mathenge's gubernatorial running mate, Jimmy Kibaki underscored that he will consult his father, Mzee Mwai Kibaki before making a decision. He underscored that if his father agreed, then he will accept the clarion call.

“A wise man will never shy from consulting his advisers and close allies. I do also have my own boss and he will be the first one I will consult. For those who do not know, my boss is, you will know who he is. That is mzee,” Jimmy said.

Having shown interest in joining OKA which has since joined Raila's Azimio la Umoja, the pivotal question that lingers is will Jimmy follow OKA in Azimio and support Raila's President ambitions or will he support Dr William Ruto? Share your thoughts with us.
