Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has responded to Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho’s move to record a statement against him at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over recent remarks.

Sonko, during a rally at Dagoretti South on Sunday, claimed that himself alongside PS Kibicho and persons he referred to as the ‘Deep State’ in 2017 stage-managed destruction of vehicles and laid the blame on the opposition Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party so as to ruin its public image.

Kibicho on Monday went to the DCI headquarters where he recorded a statement, afterward addressing a press conference at his office where he said he has had enough of Sonko’s attempts to assassinate his character adding that he will pursue the case to its legal and logical conclusion.

Sonko, however, in a rejoinder late Monday evening told the PS to “bring it on” saying he has all the necessary evidence to back up his claims.

The ousted Nairobi city boss, while stating that he has gathered from sources that PS Kibicho plans to move to court to sue him this week, said he looks forward to an invitation from the DCI to record his own statement.

“I have learned from reliable media reports that Interior PS Karanja Kibicho presented himself to the DCI ostensibly to record a statement, even without an invitation, after the revelations I made yesterday while addressing the public in Dagoretti,” said Sonko.

“I have also gathered that he plans to move to court this week purportedly to sue my person over my statement yesterday. And my brief response to him is simple: bring it on! Throughout my public life, I have never made any allegations that I cannot substantiate, including the truth I spoke yesterday.”

He added that: “I therefore look forward to an invitation from the DCI to record my statement, and for the PS to move to court quickly so that I can table all the evidence I have for Kenyans to see and judge for themselves.”

The controversial politician further said he will also provide evidence of an alleged assassination attempt against Orange Democratic Movement (DCI) party leader Raila Odinga in 2017.

“I am also ready to table evidence of how the so-called deep state and system organized the attempted assassination of the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in 2017, and how the same system financed the delivery of sewerage at the Jacaranda Grounds to prevent the then People’s President from holding a public rally,” he said.

“I was the main mobilizer in Nairobi for the so-called system, so I know what I am talking about and I have a lot to tell my fellow Kenyans and the world. The time has come when we must fix this country, and dismantle the so-called deep state that keeps misusing leaders to mobilize the youth for them.”
