Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has vowed to teach Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa a lesson if he dares contest for the city's gubernatorial seat.
The controversial Senator who spoke Monday, a day after the CS was endorsed by a section of Jubilee MPs for the County top seat, Sonko said he will vie for the post even if some leaders are against his bid.
"I have been a strong supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto. If they choose to endorse Wamalwa, I will have no option but vie as an independent candidate," he said.

Sonko explained that even his first stab in politics, when he contested for the Makadara parliamentary seat in 2010 was opposed by the head of state then, and warned the same may play out in 2017.
"I am warning the government that 2017 may be a repeat of the Makadara elections in 2010. I will teach Wamalwa an unforgettable political lesson, " cautioned Sonko.
