Kenyan Man Splashes Sh130,000 to Advertise Himself for Nairobi Deputy Governor Seat



A Kenyan man on Wednesday spent Sh130,000 to advertise himself for the vacant Nairobi Deputy Governor seat in a local newspaper.

In an advert titled ‘Expression of Interest’, Philip Chogoti Chepsat, a resident of Nairobi, pleaded with Governor Mike Sonko to appoint him to the position that was left vacant following the resignation of former Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe in January 2018.  Igathe cited a strained work relationship with Governor Sonko as the reason for his resignation.

Chepsat said he is a university graduate with more than 15 years of experience in public service, hence fit to take up the position.

“I have reached out to you (Governor Sonko) openly because I am not sure if my earlier communication did reach you. I also know that you cherish openness and transparency. I am driven by a strong conviction that I could make a significant contribution to your efforts to improve Nairobi city,” read the ad in the Daily Nation newspaper.

If appointed, Chepsat vowed to perform beyond the expectations of Governor Sonko and those of Nairobi residents.

“I look forward to your kind consideration to make me part of the leadership in Nairobi county. I vow to meet if not exceed, your expectations and the expectations of the residents of Nairobi County,” he stated.

Governor Sonko had previously appointed deported Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna to the position but the Nairobi County Assembly declined to approve the nomination on grounds that the appointee was not a Kenyan citizen.
