Former Nairobi County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko is now on his own after he recently made claims on how the 2017 post-election chaos were planned in Nairobi.
Sonko while at a rally in Dagoretti over the weekend, in presence of Deputy President William Ruto claimed that Interior PS Karanja Kibicho alongside him were the planners of the chaos.
Sonko has now been summoned to DCI over his statement claimed that they bought T-shirts, printed them ODM and bought second hand vehicles which were burnt by hired goons who disguised as ODM supporters so that Raila Odinga’s side can be blamed.
Jubilee Party leadership at the Nairobi County Assembly has now told Sonko to own up over his utterances that he was part of a team that planned the chaos.
Led by the Assembly majority leader Abdi Guyo, the leadership denounced Sonko’s actions saying that he did not act at the behest of the Jubilee party and perpetrated the chaos out of his own volition.
“Let it go on record that Sonko was acting on his own behalf and not on behalf of Jubilee and for political expediency and because he has already incriminated himself, then he needs to be charged on his own account,” said Guyo.
The MCAs were also concerned that the allegations made by Sonko against Interior PS Karanja Kibicho are serious and if left unchecked could have far-reaching consequences ahead of the 2022 general elections.
“We are convinced that Sonko incriminated himself by making the utterances on Sunday and as such he should be charged for the atrocities he committed to the people of Nairobi,” they said.
Guyo, who doubles as Matopeni ward MCA, dared Sonko to make public the names of those he claims are part of the deep state, at the same time warning him against linking Jubilee Party to the deep state.
He further called on the Directorate of Criminal investigations (DCI) to expedite the matter noting that it was an issue of great interest to the people of Nairobi and the country at large.
The sentiments by the ward legislators come just a day after Kibicho recorded a statement with the DCI over Sonko’s allegations.
The PS distanced himself from the allegations and accused Sonko of character assassination. He also vowed to seek legal redress by the end of the week.
