Nominated MP Sabina Chege stated that she turned down an offer to be Nairobi Deputy Governor in the last election in order to support former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
She says that many other Jubilee leaders with proven track records were unable to reclaim their seats due to their political stance.
“I had an offer to be Nairobi Deputy Governor but I left that to ensure that our leader (Uhuru) would finish his tenure properly and did not exit in shame,” Sabina said.
Sabina, who defended her recent visit to State House, stated that if she had other interests during the last elections, she would have contested for a political seat under the UDA party.
“It hurts when people call us sell-outs, if I had gone to UDA, I would have got a very big seat. Today I would be an elected leader, and even if I would not have won, you have seen how this party has rewarded its supporters,” she said.
During the interview, she defended her decision to support the Kenya Kwanza government despite being a member of the Azimio Coalition’s Jubilee party.
Sabina stated that she made her decision after much introspection and deciding to be part of the solution rather than the problem.
The legislator said those accusing a group of Jubilee MPs of betrayal for pledging support for the president were wrong.
