Nairobi Gubernatorial aspirant, Polycarp Igathe is gaining control of the city in his campaign journey after Sammy Boy undoubtedly voiced his unwavering support for him.
Sammy Boy who was the aide to former Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko has in the past coducted robust campaigns and his entry into Igathe’s camp is definitely vital in clinching the city’s top seat. Sammy’s wide knowledge of Nairobi’s grassroot politics and door to door campaign strategy has sent shivers to Igathe’s opponents.
In an earlier meeting with over 200 women across Nairobi county in Mukuru Kayaba,the strategist appealed to the mashinani leaders to allow him work with Azimio’s flagbearer,Polycarp Igathe now that Mike Sonko is seeking for the Governor seat in Mombasa.
“I have known Igathe for over five years now and I can boldly confirm to you that he is God-fearing leader who is a performer per excellence. Above that, Igathe is not tribal at all and that is a leader Nairobi needs” the vocal Sammy stated.
Each of the 85 wards of Nairobi produced two women leaders and two more from each of the 17 sub counties.
Polycarp Igathe who is running on Azimio ticket, is set to face off with Johnson Sakaja who is the flag bearer of the Kenya Kwanza alliance in the city race.
Sammy Boy who has always been the power mind behind Sonko’s success in city politics brings a wide range of experience and expertise having served as Sonko’s CDF manager when he was the Makadara Mp, his Chief of Staff while at the senate, and Private Secretary in City Hall.
Recent opinion polls have shown Sakaja leading with a small margin with less than two months to the elections.Igathe’s new campaign strategy of engaging Nairobi residents one on one and the entry of ground mobilisers like Sammy may see him win Nairobi’s seat by a wide margin.
