Sonko/Kidero frenemy relationship turns ugly after they had lunch together

Evans Kidero and Mike Sonko were seeing enjoying lunch together, a gesture which was interpreted has having ended animosity towards each other. But Sonko has revealed he still detests the Nairobi governor.

 

They have traded insults in public, they even got physical with each other. But they still end up sharing a meal together. Only God can define the relationship Kidero and Sonko have.

When Sonko and Kidero fought at Senate Public Accounts Committee on June 15 2016, almost everyone thought the fight meant the end of their relationship.

But five months later, the two antagonists are seen enjoying lunch together making people believe they had made amends.

But a furious Sonko has since stepped forth to make it clear he has never and will never support the Nairobi governor; he says the lunch they shared was just coincidental.

“My attention has been drawn to a story appearing in one gutter press alleging that am warming up to the Nairobi Governor Dr. Evans Kidero.

I wish to categorically state here and now that I have never, am not and will never support Dr. Kidero who is my competitor for the 2017 gubernatorial race.

My loyalty to Jubilee Party and H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Government remains unshakable and unrivalled.

I read malice and propaganda in the story only meant to portray me as a traitor having been recently appointed to the President Uhuru's presidential re-election campaign Team.

I am aware that the Governor who has interest in The Star Newspaper is solely behind this misleading story.

I wish to further state that the lunch meeting I had with Dr. Kidero was after we attended a parliamentary Standing Committee meeting on Roads and Transportation at Prugna Room Intercontinental Hotel, Nairobi.

The meeting was to build consensus on the Kenya Roads Bill (National Assembly Bill No 26 of 2015) and was attended by Governors and Senators among other top Government officials.

It was during the lunch break that Dr. Kidero joined me and Hon. Simon Mbugua for lunch and nothing political was discussed.

Finally, I will continue to oversight the Nairobi Country Executive and to hold the Governor to account for all the monies received from the exchequer and from the locally generated revenue.

My fight against corruption at City Hall continues and those dreaming that taking lunch with Dr. Kidero was to compromise me are in for a rude shock.

I cannot and shall not let down the good people of Nairobi, aluta continua.” Sonko posted on Facebook.
