Nairobi Governor Dr. Evans Kidero and Dagoreti South MP Dennis Waweru have now joined hands to ensure the Sonko Rescue Team is banned from Nairobi.
The two leaders who are both eyeing the Nairobi gubernatorial seat in 2017 seem to have merged their interests for now to eliminate Sonko first before embarking on their own duel. The efforts to eliminate Sonko from Nairobi county politics are spearheaded by Starehe MP Hon Maina Kamanda who has vowed to use all his resources to ensure the Nairobi Senator doesnâ€™t clinch the Governors seat come 2017.
The plot by the anti Sonko team is aimed at tarnishing the image of the Sonko Rescue team and finally divide the team which has won the hearts of Nairobians for itâ€™s efficiency in responding to disasters in the City and itâ€™s environs.
The anti-Sonko team has already recruited former Sonko Rescue team Chairman Mathias Owino Ogweno alias Swaleh who had been suspended for his unruly conduct. Kidero has reportedly employed Swaleh as a casual staff at City Hall and is now being used to entice Sonko Rescue Team members to defect from the outfit and join City hall as casual staff.
Sonko Rescue Team Coordinator Evans Mubena has dismissed the claims that Swaleh has managed to recruit some of the rescue team members and he has donounced the video being circulated by Swaleh of rescue team members ditching the outfit.
On his facebook page Sonko termed Swale as a renegade who was suspended for his gross misconduct.
Waweru who is a project of the Mt Kenya mafia is bankrolling a media campaign that will kill Sonko’s goodwill among Nairobians, the latest of anti- Sonko media stories is one claiming that Cord Leader Raila Odinga met with Hon Sonko and planned the heckling of Gov Kidero during the Labour Day celebrations that was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta at Uhuru Park.
