State House drugged me – Governor Sonko says in latest attempt to disown transfer of functions



Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko now says he was tricked into taking too much alcohol just before he signed the transfer of functions to the national government.

On Thursday night, Sonko claimed that some State House officials gave him alcohol and that by the time President Uhuru Kenyatta showed up to witness the transfer, he had totally lost his cognitive ability.

He, however, stated that he would still have signed the transfer deed in his sober state noting that he had a lot of respect for President Kenyatta.

“Aloo Denish I was not sobber. Hawa watu wa statehouse waliconfuse na pombe kwanza by the time I was meeting the President for the signing I was just seeing zigzag. However even if I was drunk, I had to sign coz of the respect I have for the President,” the Governor said.

Sonko made the confession after Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) boss Major Mohammed Badi moved to reposes a house that previously served as the official residence of the Nairobi Mayor and which the Governor had hoped to move into.

The Nairobi Governor has accused Badi of intimidating him through the use of force while NMS director has said the county cannot purport to run functions which they a;ready surrendered.

“Huyu jeshi akiendelea by not complying with the law then they better impeach me just like Waititu but I will not entertain his intimidation anymore. He’s forgetting this is just a contract and it can be terminated at any stage. I think he now wants to apply the tactics of how the 82 airforce was attempting to overthrow the late President Moi’s Govt,” Sonko said.

“Land is a function transferred to NMS. That area belongs to NMS and it has been sealed off. Nobody is going to claim that house,” Badi stated.

Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

“If we have a BBI that says the people of Nairobi will have more constituencies and if it’s bursaries a child in Mathare who today receives Ksh500, how will that child study up to university level,” President Kenyatta said.

“But there is another child who gets Ksh100,000 in Busury per year is that right?… BBI is not for helping Raila or Uhuru it is for you,” he continued.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
