Embattled Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko ,who everybody knows to be a fierce critic of the NASA coalition and its leader Raila Odinga ,now says he is keen to work with the Opposition.
The city boss, who was elected on a Jubilee ticket, is still coming to terms with the unprecedented capitulation of his deputy Polycarp Igathe.
During an interview with the press on Monday evening (15th January), Mr Sonko was asked how he will run City Hall with a possible backslash from a Jubilee dominated assembly, he insisted he shall work with all elected leaders including those in the Opposition.
“I have good working relationship with leaders from all the parties,including those in NASA. We have the leadership at Jubilee but in the county assembly we are all always together-We do have ODM and Jubilee representatives.
I will consult all of them on the way forward as we are all determined to serve the people of Nairobi,” he stated.
When he was asked if he was ready to reconcile with his deputy, Mr Sonko said he would “consult” Nairobi residents and the Jubilee Party leadership.
“What dialogue? Those are issues that I cannot address here. They concern the people of Nairobi and [we] will talk about them when I get there. I cannot decide now. I will have to consult the electorates and other leaders who are also not part of Jubilee.
On Tuesday,January 16th,controversial Embakassi East MP Paul Ogili ,alias Babu Owino, became the first NASA leader to stand with the embattled city boss.
Through his social media pages,the young legislator said,i quote;
“Leaders are chosen by God. Let us give Sonko humble time to deliver,” read Owino’s post.
During last year’s run up to the August 8th elections, Sonko led an onslaught against the Opposition in all his campaigns within the city.
It will be interesting to see how he shall lobby for support from lawmakers across the political divide.
