Sonko rose up from his seat ,protesting loudly after Tobiko skipped him in the speeches and instead invited Deputy President to speak at the event.
President Kenyatta, DP Ruto and the leaders had gathered at Moi Forces Academy, Nairobi to mark the national tree planting day.
Sonko interpreted the deputy President before he could read out his speech ,stating:
“Rais hajadisband county government…Hii mambo ya kudharau county government mwache.”Sonko told off Tobiko.
He took over a microphone as DP Ruto was just about to speak.
“The State House programme is very clear I am supposed to speak after the anthem then invite the minister who is to invite the DP,” Sonko said.

In his speech at the event, however,the governor said:
“We cannot undermine you (Uhuru) as despite the perception being created out there….You are the president of all the 47 counties.”
The county boss praised the president following the concerted campaign which saw Jubilee scoop more seats in Nairobi compared to the Opposition.
