'I had Ruto's Approval To Side With Azimio' City Boss Now Reveals

Members of the county Assembly allied to United Democratic Alliance have been on record professing to boycott preliminary seating citing Sakaja being more inclined to Azimio la Umoja one Kenya coalition. This arose after the names brought for Chief vetting in the county assembly favored and sided with Azimio la Umoja

However, the city boss on Tuesday, 10th January, during a morning interview on Inooro Tv revealed that Ruto gave him a go-ahead to favor Azimio la Umoja. He hinted that Azimio occupied the majority of positions in the county hence it would be hard to work without engaging them.

 “If you look at the last election in Nairobi, in the presidential vote, Azimio got the majority. We lost the Senate and Woman Rep seats. Out of the 17 MP seats, UDA only managed four, the same case with MCAs; they are the majority with a margin of about 15. In this scenario, nothing would have sailed through if I didn’t do that,” Governor Sakaja expound.

He went further to heap praise on Azimio la Umoja for allowing UDA to bag seven chairmanship slots in committees and four vice chairs despite being the minority.
