"I hereby forward my nominee, Lawyer Miguna Miguna to undergo full vetting process and approval by the County Assembly for the position of Deputy Governor".

Sonko's office, the Nairobi County government, has however dismissed a similar letter in March, that claimed the appointment of East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP Simon Mbugua as Deputy Governor.

The former CJ was replying to a tweet by Citizen TV in which the Nairobi governor discussed his trip to United Arab Emirates (U.A.E).

According to Elachi, Miguna was not qualified for the deputy governor's position because of his problematic citizenship status. We will now follow the law and the Constitution.

It also comes hours after Miguna cancelled his flight to Kenya citing the government's failure to issue him with a valid passport. Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been ranked dead last in a performance ranking the three Kenyan cities; Nairobi, Kisumu and Mombasa.

Despite Miguna scoffing at the nomination and terming it as a "malicious distraction and sideshow", Sonko maintained that he made the move in the spirit of political reconciliation and to promote national unity. "Take that to the bank", self-assured Sakaja said in a Facebook post seen by TUKO.co.ke on Thursday, May 17.

"Miguna will not become the Deputy Governor of Nairobi".

On Wednesday evening, a letter signed from Sonko addressing Speaker Beatrice Elachi recommended Miguna for the top job.

In March this year, Sonko who is a member of the ruling Jubilee party, asked his Facebook followers to help him choose a replacement for Igathe.

But Sonko seem to have backtracked on his promise to the Kikuyu community and opted for Miguna, a Luo.
