Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has threatened to bolt out of Jubilee Party citing unfair treatment in the party.
He accused a group of 12 Members of Parliament of unfairly ganging up to sabotage his bid of clinching the party’s ticket.
“The legislators led by Starehe MP Maina Kamanda are trying to play tribal politics by fronting one of their own. I however want to remind them that there are other alternatives which I can seek to ensure that I represent the people of Nairobi,” he said.
Speaking at Ngara Market yesterday, Sonko declared that he will not vie as an independent candidate as widely speculated saying that the move will give the Jubilee candidate an easy ride into the governor’s seat.
“Some people are now scheming that I should run as an independent candidate so that I split my votes and Governor Evans Kidero’s to automatically make the Jubilee candidate sail through,” he said.
“I call upon my supporters to remain calm and wait for my final announcement which I will make when pushed to the wall,” he said.
The Nairobi Senator further reiterated that he will not appear before the Jubilee disciplinary committee which linked him to the chaos witnessed at Bomas of Kenya last week.
