A source in Mr Sonko’s team who sought anonymity said the county chief yesterday called President Uhuru Kenyatta to inform him about Igathe’s resignation.
He emphasised that Uhuru urged Sonko to focus on serving Nairobians since the ‘political game’ played by his former deputy had been overtaken by events.
“Sonko is a personal friend of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto. They talked at length. Uhuru urged Sonko to focus on service delivery,” the source said.
President Uhuru Kenyatta jetted in yesterday after an official visit to South Africa and is expected to have a one-on-one talk with Nairobi leaders.

There are indications Mr Igathe had ‘a healthy’ phone conversation with Sonko a few minutes before appearing on a TV show where he defended the county. He resigned four hours after the show.
On Friday, before Igathe resigned, he and Sonko had a lengthy phone conversation and issues of figure inflation arose.
Sonko was at the Coast for the induction workshop for county executives.
