Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta to forgive Mike Sonko for abusing him.
Speaking on Thursday at Kabarak Nakuru County during the remembrance service of the late Daniel Toroitich arap Moi, Kalonzo promised to mentor Sonko once he was done with his drama.
"Mheshimiwa rais nakuomba uniachie huyo kijana wetu anaitwa Mike Mbuvi Sonko amekutusi sana. Tunaomba msamaha. Akimaliza hizi episodes we will yet mentor him. Usiyashikilie hayo maneno," he requested the Head of State.
At the same time, Kalonzo accused Deputy President William Ruto of radicalizing the youth citing the recent example of the fight that broke out between South Mugirango MP Silvanus Osoro and Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati.
"You cannot afford to antagonize your people create class wars and radicalize the youth. Yani unaradicalize even a member of parliament kiasi kwamba kijana kama Sylvanus Osoro anashambulia mwenzake kwa matanga karibu na jeneza," the former VP said.

Sonko has been in police custody since Monday after he appeared at the directorate of criminal investigations (DCI) to record a statement.
On Thursday the court pushed his bail hearing to Tuesday, according to Kiambu court administrator.
Reports emerged on Wednesday evening that an officer from the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit had sworn an affidavit to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) accusing Sonko of having terror links.
Chief Inspector Newton Thimangu, in the affidavit, claims to be in possession of intelligence information about Sonko allegedly recruiting a militia group to disrupt the peace and stability of the nation.
