Thursday June 27, 2019 - Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, has shocked Nairobians after he was spotted leading a demonstration in Machakos County.

On Wednesday, Sonko was among a group of Ukambani leaders who were demonstrating over what they termed as poor leadership by Machakos Governor, Dr Alfred Mutua.

The leaders called Mutua a traitor, accusing him of spoiling for other leaders in the region and sabotaging their political ambitions.

Sonko’s visit to Machakos is seen as a retaliation to Mutua’s visit to Nairobi Tuesday where he lashed out at the city’s poor leadership for neglecting the Tom Mboya and Dedan Kimathi statues.

Sonko, who had donned a blazer and a red t-shirt with matching red shoes and a golden chain on the neck, majestically walked to the station, with the help of a swagger walking stick.

He faulted the Machakos Health Department for ordering the closure of former Kibwezi lawmaker, Kalembe Ndile’s Water Park Hotel (Macha Beach Hotel) saying it was not justified.

“I have learnt that they don’t have a serious charge.”

“They’re now saying the hotel management did not spray a mosquito repellant,” Sonko said.

Sonko was accompanied by MPs, Dan Maanzo, Patrick Makau and former MP, Reuben Ndolo, who staged a solidarity march to protest what they termed as Mutua's dictatorial leadership style.
