Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has been cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to contest for the Nairobi governorship seat in the upcoming August 9 General Election.

Sakaja was given the green light on Tuesday alongside his deputy James Muchiri. They will be vying on a UDA Party ticket.

Nairobi County Returning Officer Albert Gogo announced Sakaja’s clearance at the Kasarani Sports complex after Sakaja submitted the required documents.

“I hereby certify that Johnson Arthur Sakaja has been validly registered as a potential county governor in the elections to be held in August 9,” he said.

 Speaking after presenting his documents, Sakaja assured Nairobi residents that his administration will ensure quality service is delivered.

“Nairobi residents should avoid looking at tribe when voting. Let’s vote for leaders who have the interest of Nairobi at heart,” Sakaja said as he assured his supporters that he would clinch the seat.
