Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has warned Embakasi East Mp Babu Owino against insulting President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Sonko, in his message threatened to cause Owino harm should he further abuse Kenyatta.
The city county boss said he was not afraid of losing his governor seat if it meant defending the head of state.
“Uhuru Kenyatta ni rais wa Kenya. Jubilee tuko na ma mafia, tuko na ma rasta wa jubilee. Tuko na MCA wajuaji kama Mark Ndung’u. Kama anataka kudungwa, tutamua Mark Ndungu akudunge, tutatuma ma rasta wa jubilee wakudunge, (Uhuru Kenyatta is the President of Kenya. In Jubilee we have mafia, we have rasta men, and we have cunning MCAs like Mark Ndung’u. If he wants to be stabbed, we will send Mark Ndung’u to stab you. We will send Jubilee rasta men to stab you),” Sonko said.
The former student leader on Sunday 24 September during a rally in Kawangware is said to have referred to the President as ‘mtoto wa mbwa.’
He was then arrested on Monday on charges of subversion, incitement to violence and offensive conduct.
The legislator pleaded not guilty and was released on bail but was later rearrested and is allegedly going to be charged with possession of illegal firearms and assault.
