Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has claimed that the system is crafting a plot to betray former Prime Minister Raila Odinga ahead of 2022.
In an open letter to Odinga posted on his Facebook Page, Sonko noted that just like he was betrayed, the ODM chief will also be abandoned by those he thinks are his allies.
“Baba remember this is the same system that made you suffer for so many years by even stealing your election in 2013 and 2017. Na Baba mimi nakusihi ukae rada, your Son the late Fidel was more than a friend to me, even Her Excellency Mama Ida can attest to this. Fidel wanted me to clinch the Makadara Parliamentary seat on an ODM ticket. Baba I respect you so so much but vile nimerukwa na hii SYSTEM hata wewe unachorewa kurukwa for somebody else and not my friend Hustler. Mark my words, Baba ,” Sonko posted.
Sonko urges Raila to Fight for Less Fortunate
The vocal governor also urged Odinga to continue fighting for the rights of the less fortunate in society, adding that he should not accept to be boxed into a corner by the regime.
“Baba Raila Amollo Odinga, Kenyans, especially the poor, used to believe in you as a MTETEZI WA WANYONGE. You have very high chances of becoming the next President BUT usikubali kuwekwa BOX na hii system for your people to be evicted and displaced like animals. The illegal demolition in the video below took place this week in Kibra constituency. With alot of pain and bitterness let me say this, Article 40(4) of our Kenyan Constitution must apply before demolitions and evictions of this nature are carried out, I'm not trying to praise myself but when the Nairobi county Government, National Government and World Bank were doing Karandini market in partnership, my administration spent 18 million shillings to compensate all the traders before they were relocated to another market site at the county depot,” Sonko’s statement read in part.
