Sonko reveals why he stopped fighting Kidero

16 December 2015, 23:58 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has maintained that he will challenge Governor Evans Kidero for the county's gubernatorial seat in 2017 polls.

Sonko said he heeded to his late father's advice beseeching him to put aside his personal differences and untimely power struggle with Kidero to clinch the gubernatorial seat in the forthcoming elections.

"Before my late dad passed on, he asked me to stop fighting with my Governor. I also realized that it was unfair for me attacking Governor Kidero because it was affecting development," Sonko told the press.

"Now we have good working relationship for betterment of Nairobians and the Constitution is very clear we need to respect each other. I am still in the race for Nairobi Governor position and people will be ones to choose who they prefer," he added.

However, Sonko insisted that he will not be quiet whenever incidents of corruption emerge in the county administration despite enjoying cordial relationship with Kidero.

"If there is corruption I won't keep quiet. I will deal with Kidero's juniors and MCAs who have been stealing a lot and if any resident has graft evidence should bring to me but for now I have no any graft dossier against the Governor," said Sonko.

Sonko also stated that he decided to suspend his Sonko Rescue Team services following Kidero's complaints that it was interfering his administration's service delivery to residents.

The Senator, however, pointed out that not all services were suspended but some which the county doesn't provide such as free funeral services including provision of hearses and coffins to needy bereaved families are still offered.
