Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko claims that there are cartels within the Nairobi County who are wishing for his arrest so that they can swindle the county.
Sonko was speaking with regards to summonses made to him by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission over remarks he made against Women Representative Esther Passaris during Madaraka Day celebrations .
Sonko says that in any case he is arraigned in court and barred from accessing his county office, he shall run the county affairs from outside.
“I want to categorically state that in the event it is established that have a case to answer before the law, i am ready to step aside to allow the EACC complete investigations and determination of the matter,” said Sonko.
“I know many cartels will celebrate this move and think of coming back to swindle public funds but poleni sana, is shall still be monitoring all the projects i initiated closely during my absence from office. God bless Nairobi, God bless Kenya,” said Sonko.
On the summon by EACC, Sonko stated that he shall honour the summon after finishing with Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso and Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s funerals.
The EACC on Tuesday wrote a letter to Sonko asking him to report on Thursday over his utterances against Passaris.
