Sonko Emerges After Impeachment, Vows to Shake ‘Dynasties’ in Comeback

Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko says those who think his political career is dead and buried after he was shown the door at the City Hall should go back to sleep and dream again.

He has broken his silence two days after the Senate endorsed his impeachment by the city county assembly.

Sonko accompanied his long statement published on his social media handles with a brief video clip of him driving himself.

He began by acknowledging that he has accepted the painful route his political career has taken for now.

“As I said before, there is life after politics and I’m excited to go back to my life and and be with the ordinary people who have been supporting me all my political life,” he said.

The former county boss went on to rebuke President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga for allegedly plotting his removal from office.

The flashy politician alleged that the senators who supported his impeachment were paid Ksh2 million each, while others feared facing disciplinary action in their political parties.

“Some of my (former) colleagues in the Senate had to sacrifice me because of the pressure from their party bosses, who personally called them one by one to impeach for the mere fact that I was not born in State House and my my father was neither a President nor a Vice- President.”

Comeback

In his message to the so-called dynasties (sons of former top national leaders), Sonko said he would bounce back like never before and disappoint them.

“I have not been impeached by the people of Nairobi and Kenyans at large. God has not impeached me as well and I know he has better plans for me,” he assured himself.

Sonko added his family had been humiliated in public for things they never did.

“To my beautiful wife and daughter Saumu, whose names were dragged into this mess, continue to be strong women.”
