• Churchill and Sakaja have been friends over the years with the comedian even interviewing the politician for his popular Churchill Show.

• Churchill had nothing but nice things to say about the governor-elect.

Comedian Churchill Ndambuki has celebrated Nairobi Governor-elect, Johnson Sakaja. The affable Churchill sent a hope-filled message to the tall Sakaja who trounced his opponent Polycarp Igathe.

"CELEBRATION HOUR: Allow me to celebrate my brother, Nairobi Governor @jsakaja.You’ve fought the fight, you’ve finished the race."

Churchill espoused that Sakaja was the right man for the Nairobi governorship.

"I'm glad Nairobi has for the first time in history Msee ako tops anaweza sema anawalombotov. The Youth have won in you...Nairobi’s dreams and aspirations now look more real with you at the helm."

He finished his message by praying that Sakaja's reign as the Nairobi governor would be a successful one.

"May the same God you’ve served deligently guide you in propelling the green city in the Sun to even greater heights.We celebrate you (Sak).😁Baraka kibao."

Interesting thing is that Sakaja's hopes of becoming the leader of Kenya's biggest county as far as revenue collection goes were almost not realized.

This was because of the thorny issue of whether the charismatic leader had gotten a legitimate degree, a condition for a candidate running for a gubernatorial seat.

The intrigues involving his degree dragged out for many weeks so much so that even the Uganda authorities got involved.

This was after Sakaja claimed that he had gotten his degree from a university located in the pearl of Africa. 

Johnson had to even go to the courts to force the issue, with the courts ending up siding with him and allowing him to be on the ballot.

Let us hope and pray that Churchill's assertion that Sakaja is the right man for the job holds up, considering the poor performance of last two governor's Nairobi elected.
