Kidero is set to go up against more than 7 politicians, among them Mike Sonko, Dennis Waweru and Margret Wanjiru ,who come from the Kikuyu community or associated in one way or another.In a bid to ensure he garners more votes from the community, Kidero announced that he will adopt the name ‘Kariuki’ from the Kikuyu Community. The Nairobi governor made the revelation Yesterday as he was speaking at a Roads and Construction launch in Ngara,Nairobi.
‘’If my name needs to change to Kariuki so that you can elect me,let it be. When a name does not sound that way,some of you just switch off the network’’ He was quoted.
