  • Just a few days after being announced as Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko's running mate for the governorship race, Polycarp Igathe has taken a dig at incumbent Governor Evans Kidero.

    Speaking during an interview at a local TV station, the Vivo Energy Managing Director stated that Kidero was 'riding a bicycle without wheels'.

    "In government, there are two things; a procure-to-pay wheel where you procure things to offer services to residents, then there is another wheel I call order-cash where you generate revenue.

    "These things are broken. The bicycle is not moving...Evans is riding a bicycle without wheels," he stated.

    Igathe also responded to Kidero's claims that he was a project of Jubilee Party by saying that he was nobody's project but a product of hard work with a definite vision.

    "I am nobody's project... I am a leap of faith. I have been to climb one mountain and get to the top and then you realise there is another mountain to climb," he asserted.

    He further broke down his role in the partnership with Sonko saying he would be in charge of implementing working systems, referring to himself as the 'foot soldier.'

    "Sonko understands what the people need and I back up because I come from a systemic thinking office organisation.

    "That is why Sonko and I will deliver this," he affirmed.

    Igathe was unveiled as Sonko's running mate on Wednesday with Deputy President William Ruto terming Sonko and Igathe as the dynamic duo.   ©   2018   All Rights Reserved
