Jubilee MPs clash with Uhuru’s allies over Sonko

Public fallout in Jubilee

This is a much needed support for the embattled governor who in an interview with the Saturday Standard stated that he had “kept cool for long enough so if they want us to play politics, it is game on”.

At a press conference held in Nairobi on Friday, Nairobi county MCAs openly rejected calls by powerful Jubilee party Vice Chairman David Murathe to impeach governor Sonko.

Led by Majority Leader Abdi Guyo and Majority Chief Whip Mwaura Chege, the legislators made it clear that they “have no intention, no motivation and no plan whatsoever to impeach the Governor."

The legislators made it clear that they would only listen to President Uhuru Kenyatta even as a section of the party leadership express reservations after Sonko presented Miguna Miguna’s name for vetting and approval to be his deputy.

"The spokesman of our party is President Uhuru Kenyatta. He is the only person allowed to speak on behalf of the party.” Guyo said.

According to the Saturday Standard that at the center of Sonko’s woes are two powerful groups with interests in tenders from the Sh 40 Billion that the county receives annually.

Sonko has had a public fallout with several Jubilee party officials including PS Karanja Kibichu who he has alleged has evil plans over his life and is working day and night to scuttle DP Ruto's 2022 bid.
