Resigning from office is one of the options embattled Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonk has on the table. This comes after several months of push and pull with the national government, which through the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) has taken over major functions of the county government of Nairobi.
According to a source from City Hall, Governor Sonko has had enough of the frustrations from President Uhuru’s regime and has confided to his close associates he sees no reason to continue being the governor when he is literally not doing anything in the office and earning a salary for it.
”He says there is no reason to continue being frustrated. It is not a matter of life and death. He has changed his earlier perception of the military man. Fighting him is not as easy as he had previously thought,” a source confided to this writer.
Last week, Sonko had a meltdown on social media after an article by The Standard indicated how he had fallen from a powerful, influential, and notable figure in Nairobi’smanagement, but has since fallen to grass, after the new kid, Major Badi entered the block and rendered him powerless.
Sonko has constantly been whining in his battle with Nairobi Metropolitan Services boss, General Mohammed Badi. This is not the first time that the county boss is clashing with members of the fourth estate when not impressed by their coverage of news.
On 05 November last year, the governor was caught on live TV physically assaulting a journalist at the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) offices. At the time, the Governor had appeared at the EACC headquarters to clarify on information he gave that enabled him to vie for the gubernatorial seat two years ago.
