- Sonko accuses Kenneth of betrayal in 2013 and therefore not fit to be Jubilee candidate in the forthcoming General Elections
Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has narrated how Peter Kenneth made him and his family shed tears uncontrollably in 2013.
In an interview on Citizen TV, the Nairobi senator said Kenneth refused to back down at support Uhuru Kenyatta who was then facing crime against humanity case at the International Criminal Court in Netherlands.
“People pleaded with Kenneth to support Kenyatta but he refused, to me that was total betrayal and working with the opposition,” Sonko said.
“My wife, children and I cried when Kenneth remained adamant that he will not back down and I will never support him politically in any race,” Sonko said.
Both Sonko and Kenneth are eying the Nairobi gubernatorial position on a jubilee Party ticket.
The two have of late involved in bitter exchange of words over who is the best candidate to oust Kidero.
Although Kenneth has downplayed the infighting between him and Sonko, the senator has been open in his criticism direct at Kenneth.
