Sonko surprised viewers during his interview on Wednesday at Citizen TV.

Governor Sonko during JKLive Show

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Wednesday night made some interesting revelations during the JKLive show.

Sonko, who was put on the spot by the host, Jeff Koinange, claimed that Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and him (Sonko) used to smoke weed when Waititu was a Member of Parliament.

“I think he used to smoke alot of bhang as MP, and I'm a witness to this, we used to go to a certain toilet, infact he was hiding bhang in the socks,” stated Sonko.

Use of American Accent

When questioned about the reason for the use of the American accent, the controversial governor pointed out that the change was to impress the investors who were present.

“For now because there are no investors in here, it remains city. But I am going to London, so you wait you will see my speech it will be city (American accent),” remarked the Nairobi Governor.

The accent used by the former Nairobi Senator had been made fun of by Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho in 2018 after Sonko used it during the opening of the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference that was held at the KICC.

The politician further alleged that the Kiambu County boss had stolen land in Embakasi during the time he was a law maker.

“Sonko is not a mad man. Waititu used to throw stones and stole a lot of land in Embakasi. I want to tell my counterpart that time for such things has come to an end,” explained Sonko.

The Nairobi governor further noted that Waititu had stolen land belonging to widows in Kiambu.

Sonko, who is under fire over the lack of a deputy governor, explained that he used to be a thief and amended his ways by giving back what he stole.

“Nilirudisha vitu zote niliiba. Ilikuwa wizi ya akili. Kesi ilikuwa kotini, nilifanya kesi na nikaachiliwa. Wakati huo, sheria haikuwa na mwelekeo jinsi ya kutatua swala hilo. (I returned all the things I stole. My form of stealing used to be clever. I went to court and won my case because at that time the law was not clear on such issues.)" said Sonko.

Demolitions temporarily stopped

Sonko who had been on the spot for recording people over demolitions and stealing of land, halted the process in December.

The governor said that the process had been temporarily stopped until the completion of the festive season.

The directive had come after property worth millions was brought down at Nyama Villa Estate in Kayole, Nairobi.
