Sonko has declared that he had God on his side despite the Government being against him.

Embattled Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has turned to God for solace over his unending woes.

The flamboyant county boss, who was left as the substantive governor but with “no portfolio” after he handed over some county functions to the national government, said his enemies had the army and the police on their side but he had God.

Sonko said despite being under siege from all corners, God was on his side and was helping him overcome all his tribulations.

He tweeted:

They have the army, the police and gov’t agencies to intimidate me but I have God and His people as my only shield and saviour. May your will be done. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the holy spirit be with us all now and forevermore. Amen.

His tweet came after the defence council under President Uhuru Kenyatta approved the seconding of seven military officers to join the newly crated Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS).

Letter was signed by the defence council secretary, Dr Ibrahim Mohamed.

The seven officers drawn from the Kenya Army and Kenya Airforce included Maj Gen Mohammed Badi, who was appointed to NMS as the director-general.

The Defence Council approved secondment to Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) of the undermentioned general/senior/ officers.

The officers whose secondment was approved included Brig F. Leuria, Major J.V Mbithi, Major A.N Nyakundi, Major J. K. Njoroge, Lt Col J.K.Biomdo and Major A.L. Musoma.

Sonko wanted to reverse the decision to transfer county functions.

Sonko vowed to reverse the decision to transfer some county functions to NMS saying he was rushed into signing the agreement and was never allowed time to read the document fully.

He said:

When we started this process, the president had good intentions for Nairobi but some of his greedy officers in government especially the ones who hate me have hijacked the process to embarrass and frustrate me with a lot of impunity.

Besides being left powerless, Sonko also faced massive corruption allegations in court but was released on a KSh 15 million bail in a KSh 357 million case.
