There was drama at National Tree Planting function presided over by President Uhuru Kenyatta after Governor Sonko forcefully grabbed the microphone to speak after Environment and Forestry CS Keriako Tobiko.
CS Keriako Tobiko had skipped to invite Nairobi Governor , Instead opting to invite Deputy president William Ruto to make his speech before inviting the President.
A visibly angry Governor Sonko stood, walked to the podium before decrying and protesting against consistent undermining by people out to sabotage him.
“Rais Wetu Mimi ni gavana wa Nairobi siwezi kubali ku underminiwa.Mimi ndio nafaa kualikuwa alafu Dp” Mike Sonko Protested ( Mr President, I’m the governor of Nairobib and I can’t allow to be undermined any longer”, I’m the one who was to invited before the DP)
Sonko took the opportunity to assure President Uhuru Kenyatta of his support and the support of his leadership as Nairobi Governor contrary to propaganda that he was against him.
He likened his tribulations as Nairobi Governor to that of President Uhuru Kenyatta when he took over the presidency in 2013, giving assurance that he would triumph just like him.
He told Uhuru Kenyatta that some people have not come to terms that he was elected governor of the city, hence continuous sabotage. He requested them to allow him to exercise his powers as Governor without interference.
