On Saturday, former Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko defected to Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance from former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s Azimio-One Kenya Alliance.
Sonko claimed Raila Odinga and his running mate, Martha Karua, have a fierce hatred for Ukambani and former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka during remarks he made on Saturday while accompanying Ruto to a series of campaign events in Ukambani.
“Raila hana uzuri na sisi Wakamba. Akitaja tuliskia alipotaja serikali pale KICC, Hassan Joho Awe waziri wa ardhi, Do you know what role Ngilu or Kibwana will play in his administration? Is there any reference to Kamba in that list? None. Additionally, I informed Kalonzo that there is no such thing as a Chief Minister,” Sonko said.
Sonko urged the Ukambani people to support Ruto since he has been visiting the Ukambani region severally, especially for the 9 years he has served as the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya.
