Lawyer Miguna Miguna has broken his silence on his nomination to fulfill the position of Nairobi deputy governor.
In an interview with a local TV station, Dr Miguna said; "I have no idea what nearly everyone seems to be talking about. It's a malicious distraction. That's all I am saying!"
He later tweeted that he last communicated with Governor Sonko in July 2017.
Mr. @MikeSonko and I have not spoken, met or communicated since our gubernatorial debate in July 2017. I will not comment on malicious information, material or cheap propaganda circulating in the social media. Thank you. @ntvkenya @citizentvkenya @KTNNews @K24Tv @BBCAfrica

On Wednesday, Mr Miguna's lawyer Cliff Ombeta said that Mr Sonko has settled on the embattled opposition politician as his deputy, a surprise announcement that was greeted with disbelief since Mr Miguna was one of his fiercest critics in the race for the Nairobi governor's seat.
Nairobi County Deputy Communication Director Elkana Jacob shared the letter on his Facebook account but it was greeted with doubt with many City Hall sources reluctant to confirm its details.
