Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has denied claims that he was escaping to Mombasa following the order of his arrest by the director of public prosecution Noordin Haji.
Sonko who was cornered and arrested in Voi says he was in his way to a workshop in Mombasa.
‘‘Reports from EACC that i was arrested while trying to run away are another proof that the body is so much interested in playing politics,..why would i run away? To do what? I am a Kenyan who is always in the move doing whats good for the people,’’ Sonko said in a statement.
He further dared office the DPP and EACC to bring it on at the corridors of justice saying court is the best place that he now trust truth will be revealed.
‘‘I am ready, we are ready and be ready’’ Sonko stated.
At his arrest in Voi Sonko refused to board a police plane in a scuffle that saw him exchange words with police officers who later handcuffed him and thereafter he was thrown into a police chopper.
