ODM Party has called on authorities to investigate claims by former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko that the chaos which marred the country after the 2017 polls was fabricated.

In a statement to newsrooms on Monday, January 22, ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna condemned Sonko's claims.

"The recent confession by former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko that he participated in stage managing violence and destruction of property that he and his co-conspirators then pinned on ODM, is welcomed but its a little too late," the statement read in part.

"ODM demands a full inquiry into the matter so as to establish the motives and extent of these mafia-like covert criminals acts as well as the persons and institutions involved," it continued.

Sonko's claims saw Interior Principal Secretary Dr Karanja Kibicho record a statement with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) after the former claimed the latter had been involved in disrupting ODM protests.

“I want to reveal here that in 2017, I and Kibicho together with the System printed ODM t-shirts, bought second-hand cars then burnt them in Ngong road so as to be seen it was the ODM supporters that had burned them," said Mike Sonko.
