Ex-Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Thursday visited ODM Leader Raila Odinga’s Capitol Hill office, but wasn’t able to meet the former Prime Minister.
Reports indicate that Sonko bullied his way to Odinga’s office, but refused to wait for the ODM leader to conclude another meeting before seeing him.
At the time, the ODM leader was in a meeting with a section of traders from Githurai.
The incident was confirmed by Raila’s spokesperson Dennis Onyango who noted that Sonko did not meet his boss.
“It is true Sonko came to Capitol Hill, pushed his way past the gate wanting to see the PM, who was in a meeting with representatives of Githurai traders… The PM was not expecting him and did not see him. We don’t know what his (Sonko) agenda was,” Onyango told a local daily.
The ex-governors spokesperson Ben Mulwa has, however, refuted claims that Sonko was at Odinga’s Capitol Hill office.
“I am not aware whether the governor [sic] was at Capitol Hill today. I have been in court all day but let me find out and get back to you,” said Mulwa.
The alleged visit came as a surprise to many since Sonko has been a harsh critic of the handshake led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga.
Sonko believes that President Kenyatta orchestrated his removal from office.
