Kenyan newspaper ‘The Star” is reporting that Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has rejected a cabinet post offered to him by president Uhuru Kenyatta apparently in exchange for quitting the Nairobi governor’s race in favour of Peter Kenneth.

According to a report published Thursday, Sonko has said he is determined to go the top job, aiming for the Jubilee Party ticket in primaries on Friday.

“Multiple sources close to the presidency yesterday told the Star that a Cabinet position has been offered and rejected several times, wrote “The Star.”

Kenneth will face off with Sonko.

“Sonko could have been CS for the Nairobi Metropolitan Region, a new post created for him. He would oversee Kiambu, Kajiado, Murang’a and Machakos counties,” wrote Star reporter on Wednesday.

“We have given up on Sonko. We wanted him to back Kenneth and we even offered him many other options, but he has rejected all of them,” the paper quotes a source it says is familiar with the matter.

The new development comes a day after Jubilee Party secretariat denied media reports that president Kenyatta had endorsed Mr Kenneth for the City’s top job. Mr Kenyataa had, while on his way to the burial of the father to former Gatanga MP David Murathe, asked thge residents of Kirwra village to “pray for Kenneth to win the Nairobi seat.”
