However, the Jubilee governor insisted that in the spirit of the Handshake, he had to consider Nasa's proposal. A letter dated January 10, 2019 signed by Nasa chief executive Norman Magaya urged Sonko to pick Rahab Wangui. "I shall not be forwarding the name of my Deputy Governor today to allow for further consultation," Sonko said.

She has vied twice for the Nairobi Woman Representative post. In reference to Wangui, the letter signed by Magaya further stated, “She no doubt understands the needs of the people of this great city and will be a great complement to you.” Wangui has served as Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organization Nairobi Chapter vice chairperson. But Sonko failed to nominate a deputy as advised by the apex court. Law experts have in the past said the court only issued an advisory opinion, not an order.
