Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and Jubilee aspirant Peter Kenneth shared a platform as campaigns for city governorship intensify.

The governor and his possible opponent called for peaceful campaigns even as the city county boss chided Mr Kenneth for abandoning his presidential ambitions in favour of the governor seat.

They were speaking at the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK), Ruai, Nairobi during a church service.

Dr Kidero, who is running on a CORD ticket, told Mr Kenneth that he was ready to face him "after you solve your in-house issues in Jubilee."

"You need to be careful. The last time you went for the presidential seat, now you have gone for governor seat. You should be careful lest you contest for ward rep in the next election. However, let us meet in the field after you get the Jubilee nomination," Kidero told his opponent.

Kenneth is facing stiff competition for the Jubilee party ticket from Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko, Nominated MP Johnson Sakaja, Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru and former Starehe MP Bishop Margaret Wanjiru.

Kenneth said the city needs a good manager to solve some of its runaway problems such as poor sewerage systems, dilapidated road network, persistent water shortage and mounting garbage problems.
