“I have a right to speak about Kidero and Shebesh”Sonko’s says

sonkoNairobi Senator Mike Sonko has dismissed accusations that he has taken sides in the dispute between Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero and women’s representative Rachel Shebesh.

On Monday, Makueni Deputy Governor Adelina Mwau said Sonko is supporting Kidero and asked him to keep off the dispute.

Speaking to the press in Nairobi yesterday, Sonko said it is his right to speak about the incident in which Kidero allegedly slapped Shebesh and the legal issues that followed because they affect service delivery to Nairobi residents.

The senator said he will mobilise the youth to sign a petition to kick out Kidero and Shebesh from office if they do not resolve their differences.

“Those who are asking me to stop intervening in the dispute are not sincere or interested in the development of the county,” Sonko said.

His sentiments were supported by Nairobi’s Maendeleo Ya Wanawake chair Diana Wanjiku, who said the Senator’s role is to unite residents and leaders “We want development in Nairobi and leaders need to work together,” Wanjiku said.
