Babu has a message for Sonko

Speaking on Citizen TV on Monday morning, Mr. Owino urged Nairobians to give Mr. Sonko time to serve the county.

"Between 2022 and now it is not time to politic rather serve our people. We need to give Sonko time to clear as Nairobi governor, then come 2022 we can judge him on the work that he has done," he said.

The lawmaker added that if he was to have a phone conversation with Mr Sonko, he would give him ideas on how to deal with the garbage menace in the Capital.

"If Sonko called you today and asked for your help what would you do?" Citizen journalist Waihiga Mwaura asked Babu during the interview.

"I would give him ideas –for instance the issue of garbage I would tell him to devolve the issue of garbage collection to each ward. Create employment to those in the wards to do this job and it will be done perfectly. Also, ensure that you supervise," the MP said.

Mr Owino warned Sonko against giving the jobs to cartel noting that he ought to be firm.

"You need to stand strong against cartel whether. You cannot complain every time about cartels," Babu said.

The former University of Nairobi (UoN) student leader reiterated in the interview that he will be Nairobi Governor in 2022.

“The intellectual capacity of Babu Owino is at its optimum and I know I will use it to make this city better,” he said.
