Mike Sonko Calls Uhuru a Dictator as He Joins William Ruto’s Camp
Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has officially joined Deputy President William Ruto’s Tangatanga camp following his impeachment.
On Thursday, Sonko accompanied DP Ruto and his allies to the homecoming ceremony of the recently elected Msambweni MP Feisal Abdallah.
Speaking during the event, Sonko blamed ‘dynasties’ for his woes, saying that President Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga were behind his ouster.
“I was impeached because my father did not know Uhuru Kenyatta’s father, this man Jomo Kenyatta. I was impeached because my father did not know Jaramogi Oginga Odinga…,” Sonko said.
He added: “I was impeached because my family is not known. These dictators have joined forces to ensure that one of them leads this country.”
He further called out President Kenyatta for betraying people who campaigned for him in 2013 and 2017, accusing him of going to bed with his former political nemesis—Odinga.
“I respected President Uhuru, we fought for President Uhuru, we loved President Uhuru we made sure he became President… we joined forces again in 2017 but he has turned against everyone,” Sonko lamented.
“We don’t know where our President has gotten this ruthless act.”
Sonko was impeached earlier this month on four charges including gross violation of the Constitution and other laws, abuse of office, violation of national laws, and lack of mental capacity to run the county government.
