Nairobi deputy governor candidate Polycarp Igathe (Jubilee) has termed himself "Mr Fix it" for Nairobi problems and promised to restore the city's glory.

The Vivo Energy MD said that he accepted Senator Mike Sonko's request to deputise him because he has the commitment to serve.

"I am a Mr fix it. I love to be in the trenches and I am 'ego-less' because I do not take credit for what I have done," Igathe said in an interview on KTN on Friday.

"Many take political office as an opportunity to enrich themselves but for me, this is a special opportunity not to attract value but to serve the people," he added.

"We want to ensure we align ourselves to the national agenda. We will leave no one behind," said the MD.

The duo of Sonko and Igathe will next week launch their manifesto at an event presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
