Good News To Nairobians! New Kibaki In Nairobi Governor Race

Wednesday January 16, 2013 – With 47 days remaining to the March 4th poll, the race to Nairobi gubernatorial race is getting tougher and tougher as the day closes near.

But with more than six aspirants competing for the most coveted seat in the country (the Presidency), the Nairobians must think whether to elect a political novice or technocrats.
With an estimated budget of close to half a trillion shillings, Nairobians must think hard before they cast their votes. But the good news is, there is a new Kibaki in the race. Guess who…?
