Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has rejected a public appeal by one of his county residents to be his deputy.
Phillip Sogoti Chepsat, a voter in Nairobi, made his request as an “expression of interest” in the Daily Nation on Wednesday.
However, in his response on Wednesday evening, Sonko appreciated Sogoti’s interest to be his deputy but maintained that the position was reserved for a woman.
In his Wednesday advert, Sogoti, who highlighted that he is a university graduate with over 15 years of experience in public service, noted that he opted to make his request public since he is not sure if his earlier communication to Governor Sonko were received.
The Governor, however, urged Sugoti not to give up on his bid to serve Nairobian as he disclosed that there were vacancies coming up in his administration.
