‘Ukiongea siasa duni nitakunyang’anya mic’: Uhuru fires warning at Sonko
A tough-talking President Uhuru Kenyatta took a swipe at Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko over what he termed as petty politics.
The President had launched the JKIA-James Gichuru Road expressway and steered clear of politics until it was time for Sonko to speak.
“Mimi napatia hawa mic lakini wakiongea siasa duni nitawanyang’anya,” President Kenyatta said.
Sonko had accompanied the President, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and other leaders for the official launch of the expressway.
He pleaded with the President to intervene in the land grabbing case in Mukuru where squatters were reportedly kicked out.
“Mr. President, when you were at Mukuru in 2015, you promised and gave the land to squatters, in regards to the motion that was passed in the Parliament on 23rd July 1997. Your presidential directive was being followed before a cartel came and claimed the land,” said Sonko.
The Nairobi Governor further noted that Embakasi South constituency has no public school adding that the Precious Talents tragedy in Dagoretti should not be repeated.

It is only later in Kajiado that President Kenyatta delved into politics.
“Wanasiasa wanakuja wanatufurusha wanatupigisha. Na bado sio damu yao au ya mabibi zao au watoto wao inamwagika. Ni damu ya mwananchi ambaye anajaribu kutafuta namna ya kuishi katika nchi yake. Nilikuwa napongeza viongozi wa Kajiado hapo awali kwa sababu tangu tuanze muhula wa viama vingi tumeskia vurugu katika kila county lakini nyinyi wenzangu wa Ngong mnakubali watu wote,” he said.
With him on the podium was Kajiado Governor Joseph ole Lenku as he commissioned the SGR Ngong Station.
