A team of legislators have swung into action following yesterday’s drama in which Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko thwarted what he saw as efforts to undermine him.

The Members of Nairobi County Assembly have come out clean, stating that it is clear that a section of the executive is out to frustrate Sonko and make sure that he fails in delivering his mandate by sabotaging him.

Led by Waithaka MCA Anthony Karanja, the leaders are now demanding an immediate appology from Environment CS Keriako Tobiko.

Nairobi County is not able to perform well because of the frustrations by the section of the Executive, but we are now not going to allow them,” Karanja said.

“It was very clear that Tobiko did not recognize the presence of Governor Sonko. Actually, this is not the first time that Sonko is being subjected to this kind of humiliation, we have just been silent about it,” he added.


The MCAs further threatened to expose the behind the scene schemes to frustrate Sonko and ensure that his administration fails to deliver.

His sentiments were echoed by Mlango-Kubwa MCA Patricia Mutheu who noted that even if some leaders do not respect Governor Sonko, his office ought to be respected.

“Disrespecting Sonko means disrespecting the will of those who woke up early on August 8 to go and vote. We demand respect and we demand an apology,” she stated.
