Central Organization of Trade Unions Secretary-General Francis Atwoli has directed his wrath to interior PS Karanja Kibicho over Sonko woes.
Atwoli has warned interior CS Karanja Kibicho against disrespecting Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
“Mimi nataka kumwambia Kibicho awachane na Sonko afanyie watu wa laki tisa wa Nairobi kazi sababu hao ndio walimchagua. Ningependa kumueleza aige mfano ya rais wa kuleta jamii zote pamoja. Otherwise Kibicho hiyo ni ushenzi. Wacha kufuata fuata governor na fitina ndogo ndogo kama akina dada”
Speaking in Luanda market yesterday during a fundraiser to promote local football club Luanda FC, Atwoli asked Kibicho to stop his witch-hunt against the governor of Nairobi and give him space to serve the people of Nairobi.
Atwoli told Kibicho to respect himself and mind his own PS business and stop forcing his way into the leadership of the County.
He said that Kibicho is the only bitter and uncomfortable Kikuyu man with Sonko’s leadership in Nairobi.
He warned him against misusing government agencies like EACC to intimidate elected leaders.
Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko pointed a finger to “outside forces unhappy with his leadership,” and specifically accused Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho of undermining his leadership.
Part of the problems facing Mr Sonko’s administration is his failure to nominate his deputy more than a month since the Supreme Court gave an advisory opinion.
“I want to tell this PS, who has been fighting me, that he will not succeed in his attempts to put me at loggerheads with the Kikuyu community,” he said during a “Doing Good” day celebrations, an international day that recognizes remarkable contributions made by individuals to society, at City Hall, Nairobi.
