Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has said he will not be intimidated to hand over money to the Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) being headed by Major General Mohammed Badi.
In a Twitter post after appearing before a Senate Committee, Sonko noted that he is ready to pay the ultimate price in a bid to defend Nairobi County.
He claimed that the people who stole billions from the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency have descended on Nairobi hoping to swindle county cash through the NMS.
Here is Sonko’s full statement:
Jail me! There's life in prison. Impeach me! There's life after politics. Kill me! There's life after death where my late father and our beloved founding father of the Republic of Kenya the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta are resting in peace. But there's no amount of intimidation that will be used against me to force me to breach the law by giving funds to an illegal entity.
The same players who stole 63 Billion from the ministry of health scandal for supplying air to counties and still stole more Billions from KEMSA in the Covid billionaires scandal have landed in Nairobi county wanting to swindle County funds through an illegal entity because its headed by a military man and that the order is from above so we should breach the law. Never over my dead body.
The only orders from above that I fear should only be from God our creator who is in heaven. From the ashes we came, and to the ashes we shall return and only God has power over that.
