Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has announced his bid to occupy State House as Kenya’s President.
The flamboyant politician who rose from humble beginnings to become Makadara MP, Nairobi Senator and eventually governor revealed that he will be eyeing the seat in 2027.
He added that to achieve this, he will be relying on support and prayers from Kenyans.

The announcement which was shared by the former Nairobi county boss on social media was well received among his followers who urged him on.
