Miguna Miguna Refuses to Concede Defeat After Losing Gubernatorial Race

  • Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Miguna Miguna has blasted governor-elect Mike Sonko who is currently leading in the provisional results.

    In a series of tweets, Miguna maintained that Sonko was not the right person to lead the Capital stating that he would not recognise him as the governor.

    The Canada-based lawyer accused the prospected incoming governor of being an “illiterate convicted drug dealer” insisting that he would not transform Nairobi.

    ATTENTION: @MikeSonko remains a functionally illiterate convicted drug dealer and looter. I'll never recognize him as my governor. Period!

    Replacing a KLEPTOMANIAC with a CONVICTED CRIMINAL, DRUG PUSHER and LANDGRABBING LOOTER cannot be a solution.

    Adolf HITLER was elected German CHANCELLOR with millions of votes. "Electing" a convicted drug dealer & thief will not transform Nairobi.

    Despite emerging fourth with almost all votes counted, Miguna declined to concede defeat maintaining that he was consulting on the way forward.

    "I'm consulting widely on The Way Forward concerning the fight against the Cartels & the Culture of Impunity. Please, STAY TUNED!" he tweeted.

    He thanked his team and those who voted for him for their support and steadfastness hinting that he would still continue his fight against what he termed as Cartels.

    “I wish to extend my gratitude to everyone who voted for me on August 8th and those who have contributed to our struggle thus far,” he stated.

    The struggle against the cartels and merchants of impunity - thieves and drug dealers - has just started. Cheers & Viva!
