He went on to reveal that Mr Odinga called him on Saturday,encouraging him to stay strong.

“Raila called me yesterday and told me to stay strong,” he stated.

He further likened his situation to that of Raila and his co-NASA principals when their security details were temporarily withdrawn by the government but were not harmed.

“When Raila Odinga’s security was withdrawn did his life continue or not? When Joho’s was withdrawn did life continue or not?”he posed.

The county boss was in the accompany of over 100 Members of the Nairobi County Assembly (MCAs) and Assembly Majority Leader Abdi Guyo who declared their support for him.

Sonko further defended his decision to nominate Kenyan born-Canadian lawyer Miguna Miguna to the position of Nairobi County Deputy Governor, reiterating his earlier statement that only Miguna could help him fight the cartels within City Hall.

He also criticized the State for issuing Lawyer Miguna with a Kenyan identity card and passport as well as clearing him to run for Nairobi gubernatorial seat during the last year’s general election yet ,now that he has chosen him, “they’re saying he is Canadian.”

The embattled governor spoke after having just returned to the city after moving county operations to his rural home in Mua hills, Machakos, last week.

He had initially vowed to petition the Senate over the withdrawal of his security ,claiming his life and that of his family was in danger.
