Sonko complains to Uhuru at BBI event

Hawa watu wamepanga kitu ya BBI wameanguka kabisa

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko complains to President Uhuru Kenyatta after being overlooked at BBI event

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Wednesday complained that he had been sidestepped in the programme meant to launch the BBI report to the public.

Sonko was given a chance by Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya to address delegates and welcome them to Nairobi.

The Nairobi Governor hit out at organizers of the BBI launch event, accusing them of lacking the courtesy to include him in the official programme.

"Thank you Governor Oparanya for giving me this chance and that is what courtesy demands. Hawa watu walipanga BBI walianguka kabisa. Vile watu wa nje wanakuja kuitana hapa ni siasa mbaya na siasa mbaya ni maisha mbaya. Huwezi kuja kukaribisha watu hapa na mimi niko hapa (I think the BBI event planners failed completely. It is not proper for outsiders to welcome guests here because that is bad politics and it is likely to have negative effects. Leader are being welcomed by outsiders when I am here )," Sonko complained.
