Meet the man who runs Sh130,000 newspaper ad asking Sonko to appoint him as Nairobi DG

A resident of the town reached out to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko asking for consideration for Deputy Governor’s role.

Phillip Sogoti Chepsat said in an advert on a local newspaper on Tuesday that he has what it takes to fill the place that has been vacant for nearly two years now.

With 15 years of public service experience, Sogoti said that he was the right candidate to replace Polycarp Igathe who resigned in January 2018, citing his boss’s lack of confidence.

“I am a graduate of university with over 15 years of public service experience. I am strongly convinced that I could contribute significantly to your attempts to enhance Nairobi City,” the piece read

He added that, because he understands Governor Sonko as an individual who values openness and transparency, he was encouraged to convey his interest openly. On January 12, last year, Igathe announced his resignation through his twitter account.

“Dear Nairobians, I resign my seat as elected Deputy Governor of Nairobi City County on 31 January 2018 with a heavy core. I’m sorry I haven’t earned the Governor’s confidence to allow me to drive County Admin & Management, “he wrote.

Surprisingly, he resigned hours after a television interview where, since taking over as City County Executive on August 21, 2017, he defended the achievement of Governor Sonko’s government.
