Embattled Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has moved his office from Nairobi County to Machakos County the fear for his life.
Sonko who has been at wars with Interior CS Karanja Kibicho says he is running Nairobi Countyb operations from his Mua Hills home in Machakos following threats on his life.
Sonko on Tuesday chaired a cabinet meeting from his Machakos home eliciting mixed reactions from Nairobi residents.
Last week Sonko revealed that some leaders within the Jubilee government wanted to arm twist him in the nomination of his deputy governor.
He made this revelation after an uproar following his nomination of controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna as hid deputy.
“This guy, I will not mention his name because he knows himself very well, came to me and told me he has a former DC from Kirinyaga County who can fit the deputy ugovernor position very well, but when i refused to take his guy, he started frustrating me. My wife was slapped with a Ksh. 36 Million bill from KRA out of the blues, my security was withdrawn…” lamented Sonko.
Last week interior CS reduced the number of Sonko’s security detail from 26 bodyguards to only five.
Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, speaking at a recent function, however stated that Governors were only allowed five bodyguards according to the law.
