Monday August 26, 2019 - Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, has reached out to Deputy President William Ruto with a message about how his supposed Presidency is intertwined with former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.
Speaking during an interview on K24's Punchline show, the flamboyant leader explained that if the DP continued defying Raila, he may never ascend to the top seat.
This, he continued, would drive a wedge between himself and President Uhuru Kenyatta which would make it difficult for him to get support from people allied to the President and Raila.
To show his seriousness, Sonko even offered to help mediate the two towards a truce by seeking the services of religious leaders and the President.
"I am appealing to my brother Ruto to sit down with Raila, and if that proves to be difficult, we can seek help from religious leaders and even the President himself.”
"But if he challenges the handshake, criticises the BBI (Building Bridges Initiative) and defies his boss, then he is setting himself up for a very tough future," Sonko told the show's host, Anne Kiguta.
"If he supports the handshake and the BBI, we would have no problem supporting him when Uhuru's term is over," he added.
