Sonko blames the media for his problems

18 October 2016, 17:02 William Korir

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko says that the media is to blame for his current problems with law enforcement agencies.

Sonko recorded a statement with the police on Sunday over his remarks that he was acting President.

On Friday, during the burial of former Kathiani MP Wavinya Ndeti’s husband in Machakos, Sonko allegedly said he was the acting President, as both President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto were out of the country. Ruto was in Kenya on that day. Sonko was mandated to read the President’s speech.

He says though that he was misquoted and blamed the media for not representing the real facts.

" The media has been on a witchhunt of Sonko but they will not succeed. I am stronger than ever," he told News24.

He presented himself at CID headquarters and spent two hours being grilled.

He denied the claims and said he has witnesses to support what he meant. The file will be taken to the DPP for action.

" I have my witnesses as well as my whole recorded speeches," he added.

Sonko said elsewhere that he reacted to protect the government, which was under attack by opposition leaders.
