Nairobi: Political Analyst Predicts That Sakaja Might Be 6th Or 7th President

Renown political analyst Prof Peter Kagwanja has predicted that Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja might be Kenya's 6th or 7th president.

Speaking at a TV Live Morning show on Wednesday morning, Kagwanja noted that if Sakaja was to manage Nairobi City county better than its predecessors, he might be the country's Head of State. Further, he alleged that he could be a president who would have come from a different tribe other than Kikuyu and Kalenjin. Link:

According to the popular scholar, the governor is in possession of instruments of power of a county government that is unique and the opportunity to prove his leadership mettle. All these are qualities that would earn him points in national leadership prospects in his observation.

"If Governor Sakaja does his work well, he might be the 6th or 7th president who is not a Kikuyu or a Kalenjin. He has everything on his hands. Whoever makes Nairobi work is likely to be a national leader," said Kagwanja.

This comes as Sakaja roles his sleeves to deliver services to Nairobi City county residents after being elected on August general election and sworn in to office.

He has promised to turn around Nairobi economically and socially during his inauguration.

Nairobi has had two governors previously who served for a single term each. From 2013 to 2017, it was Dr Evans Kidero. In 2017 to 2022, Mike Mbuvi Sonko unseated Kidero. However, Sonko was impeached on grounds of graft and abuse of office in 2020. In 2022 August, Sakaja battled it out with Polycarp Igathe and he won.
