Mike Sonko goes bananas during Citizen TV interview [VIDEO]

Peter Kenneth a no no


Senator Mike Sonko is the reason for half of all discussions in the country on the morning of Monday, March 20, thanks to an explosive interview during the latest episode of Sunday Live on Citizen TV.

During the said live broadcast, the Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant unleashed verbal attacks against his rival Peter Kenneth, noting their feud was personal.

According to him, the root cause goes back to the 2013 General Election when the former Gatanga MP refused to back President Uhuru Kenyatta for presidency.

Kenneth was also a presidential candidate at the time sponsored by the Kenya National Congress party, and managed the fourth position.

In the aforementioned interview Sonko told Hussein Mohamed that he was not going to step down from the Governor race in favour of the former assistant minister.

There is widespread speculation that the Jubilee Party prefers Kenneth and is planning to hand him a direct nomination so he can later fight it out with the incumbent Governor Evans Kidero of ODM.

“I have a lot of bitterness with this guy. He should have a rally and apologise to me, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, and my wife for the tears we shed,” Sonko said.

Adding: “I am not going to accept Kenneth as my running mate or to be his deputy. Let him feel our pain in 2013 when he did not support President Uhuru Kenyatta.”

Whereas Kenneth has said he was ready for nominations or a negotiated deal, Sonko was categorical last night, he said he was not ready for any boardroom negotiations over the JP ticket.
