Sonko defends his attack on Kidero

Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has defended his attack on Kidero at a senate committee saying frustrations from the law enforcement agencies made him to turn to the senate to make his point.

Sonko said his letters to the police, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Director of Public Prosecutions and the Nairobi City County have not been acted on.

“I have written letters and nothing comes out of them, it’s only DPP Keriako Tobiko who directed EACC Chief Executive Officer to commence investigations over the issues I have raised,” Sonko said.

The Nairobi Senator refuted claims that he has personal issues with Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and that he was using the senate to settle the scores.

“There is nothing like politics here, I presented authentic documents and letters to the Senate Public Accounts Committee to justify all my claims, that’s not politics,” Sonko said.

Sonko maintained that he has no ill motives and that he is just doing his work as the senator.

“The senate standing orders allow me to attend the committee sessions as a friend of the committee and therefore that is the only opportunity where I could get justice and present my points,” he said.

The Nairobi Governor has already indicated that he will not honor any senate summons until disciplinary action is taken against Sonko.

The Governor has written to the speaker of the Senate Ekwe Ethuro and his National Assembly counterpart Justin Muturi over the matter.

“The treatment I received from Senator Sonko was undeserved,” reads part of the letter.

“In the meantime I am afraid that I will not honour senate summons before the issues I have raised are addressed and the security and dignity of myself and other county officials is assured,” Kidero said.
