‘Bablas’ hit-maker Madtraxx issues rare statement on embattled Sonko

I wish Nairobi would give him a chance- Madtraxx

Taking to one of his social media pages, Madtraxx wrote “I wish Nairobi would give him a chance. All the corrupt contracts have to be stopped in favor of more competitive ones. We suffer now, for better services in future. Maybe this sacrifice is what is needed to genuinely drain the swamp. Just my take.”

Fundi Frank then responded with “High stakes politics at play Bro. Too bad”  To which Madtraxx replied with “So true... But politics at what cost? We can't keep doing the same thing and expect different results. Let's start from the bottom because from there, there's only one way to go. Cartels have to be removed so youthful energetic citizens can play their role in the transformation agenda.”

Madtraxx’s statement comes as Sonko faces impeachment from the Jubilee party and anger from disgruntled Nairobians who feel like he wastes too much time blaming cartels and going on Facebook Live.

On Thursday, the Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe divulged that the party is planning to impeach the Nairobi Governor.

“Sonko is forestalling his impeachment which has nothing to do with the DG’s position but his administration’s dismal performance. He is covering up his mistakes by trying to divert attention. His nomination of Miguna is of no significance. The impeachment will proceed and it has to do with failures to deliver services to the people as was pledged by the party during campaigns. He can throw tantrums but they will have no consequence. We want action and not talking lies.” Murathe told The Standard.

Murathe’s statement is seen as a sign that the Governor has fallen out of grace with top Jubilee officials including the Party's principal President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.
