Speaking during an interview on Thursday, Sonko disclosed that Kenyatta has never told him to step down for Peter Kenneth at any particular time.

“We are equal stakeholders in the Jubilee government and will not allow people to confuse President Uhuru. He is my friend and at no time has he called me and asked that I step down in favour of any aspirant.

“He has instead told me to fight to the end so I am firmly in the race,” the senator stated.

The flamboyant senator affirmed that he would face any opponent in jubilee at the nominations and would never bolt out of the party.

Sonko recently exposed some powerful politicians in jubilee who had tried to lock him out of the primaries in favour of the 2013 presidential hopeful.

The senator recently stated that he would never work with Kenneth until he apologised to the Head of State for failing to support him during 2013 elections.

“I have a lot of bitterness with this guy. He should have a rally and apologise to me, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, and my wife for the tears we shed.

"I am not going to accept Kenneth as my running mate or to be his deputy. Let him feel our pain in 2013 when he did not support President Uhuru Kenyatta," Sonko affirmed.

In a rejoinder, the former Gatanga MP said that he would not respond to Sonko’s remarks affirming that he was ready to meet him at Jubilee primaries slated for April.
