Senator, Mike Sonko

Mike Sonko has hit back at former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth for his ‘wearing suits without brains’ remark but noted he has forgiven him.

Kenneth, who is also vying for Nairobi governor, said the Senator has acquired a new image – donning suits every day – but has no brains to show for it.

Huyo jamaa anajua hawezi…ndiyo maana amaeanza kuvaa masuti lakini akili ni ile ile…huwezificha na suti ,” said Peter Kenneth.

Addressing supporters in Mathare on Wednesday evening, Sonko lashed out at Kenneth saying he should be preparing his agenda for the county, not attacking him.

Yeye anaanza kuingilia suti zangu…awache siasa ya kunitukana…viongozi waheshimiwe.. alianza kusema ati Ruto ni mwizi…. mimi nimemsamehea...,” Sonko said.

Sonko said he was elected by Nairobians based on what he offered, not because he does not have brains.

Walinichagua kama Senator kwa sababu sikuwa mkora…wewe (Kenneth) wacha uchotara wako…wacha uzungu wako…uza sera zako.Uko na bahati siku hizi mimi niko na heshima ya hali ya juu. Katika jina la Yesu wewe na pepo yako mbaya, na uchotara wako, nimekusamehe.”

The senator said violence would break out if he and Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero also incited the people.

“We know you as a spoiler because you fought President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2013. But we still forgave you and welcomed you into our party,” he added.

The politician reiterated that Kenneth should respect Uhuru and Ruto.

Hiyo agenda yako ya pepo mbaya wacha ikae kando.”.

Kenneth accused the Deputy President of rigging him out during the Jubilee Party primaries.
