In Summary

  • Sonko threatens to initiate the process of impeaching Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja due to his decision to ban nightclubs in residential areas.
  • DP Gachagua also protested against Sakaja's move to ban clubs saying this affected business owners from Mt. Kenya region.

Politician Mike Mbuvi alias 'Sonko' has launched a scathing attack against Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja over his decision to ban nightclubs and wines and spirits joints in residential areas.

Sonko is now threatening to initiate the process of impeaching Sakaja, because hois hasty decision has caused a lot of job loses in Nairobi.

In an interview with a local daily, Sonko insinuated that were it not for his impeachment he would still be governor today.

"Ni Uhuru tuu alileta ujuaji mingi ya pesa nane. But ningekua kwa debe haungekua Governor wa Nairobi," he told Nation. "We can use the power of the people to remove you from that seat."

Banning night clubs

"You were elected to serve Nairobians, not to punish Nairobians. We are not happy as Nairobi leaders. Respect everyone including the business community. MCAs have lifted the ban on nightclubs and you are insisting the ban is still there. Wacha kudharau wananchi," Sonko added.

He also warned the governor against disrespecting United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Party and its leaders.

"Tumekunyamazia sana because we respect you. But ukianza kudharau UDA, President and Deputy President (DP), I am sure we are going to cause havoc."

This comes a few days after DP Gachagua asked the city boss to consult him before making decisions that affected the businesses of Mount Kenya people in Nairobi. 

"I want Sakaja to note that all decisions that will negatively affect Mt Kenya people in Nairobi must be discussed. I have to be involved. We will not accept anything that troubles our businessmen," the second in command asserted.
