Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has once again hit out at individuals working tirelessly to undermine his administration as tension continues to loom within City Hall.
Taking to social media to vent out his frustration, Sonko revealed his plan of action against the ‘cartels’, using an analogy to explain how he intends to bring them down once and for all.
“The Eagle does not fight the snake on the ground,” Sonko said, likening himself to an eagle and his enemies to a snake.
“It picks it up into the sky and changes the battleground, and then it releases the snake into the sky,” he continued, referring to how he plans to render those fighting him weak and vulnerable.
Further, the governor stated that he will not accord the said cartels an ordinary war, rather, a spiritual one.
“Take your fight into the spiritual realm by praying and when you are in the spiritual realm God takes over your battles,” Sonko said emotionally.
“Don’t fight the enemy in his comfort zone, change the battlegrounds like the Eagle and let God take charge through your earnest prayer,” he concluded to the surprise of many Kenyans who know the Nairobi County Head as a brutal and carefree leader.
On Wednesday, the frustrated governor invited President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene and help him end the reign of cartels who are rooted everywhere within the county.
“Mr. President, ninaomba unisaidie kupigana na cartels in Nairobi. Wamenilemea (Mr. President, I am asking for your assistance in dismantling the cartels in Nairobi…I am almost giving up),” he stated.
He pointed out that the Urban Planning and Revenue Departments have become problematic, asserting that he is ready to surrender them to the control of the National Government if need be.
