Nairobi Governorship candidate Mike Sonko has claimed that National Super Alliance (NASA) flag bearer Raila Odinga had begged him to join the Opposition and be their candidate in the Machakos Governorship race.
Speaking in Embakasi South after attending a church service, Sonko went ahead to reveal that he has both audio and video evidence to back up his claims.
He, however, said that he would not make the video public due to his respect for Raila.
"I just do not want to make those recordings public because I respect Raila so much and I am also related to Kalonzo Musyoka.
"He is my elder brother," stated Sonko.
The Senator was responding to Odinga's sentiments that he was not fit to be the next Nairobi Governor.
During campaigns in Eastleigh last Friday, Odinga hit out at Sonko's ambitions for the county's top job.
Raila said he would resign in the event that he was elected president and Nairobians voted Sonko as their governor.
"Nasikia kuna kijana moja anaitwa Sonko anataka kua gavana wa Nairobi. Jameni hatutaki madoadoa... Kama Sonko ni gavana na mimi nimechaguliwa kama rais, nitajiuzulu siku hiyo hiyo."
(I hear there is a young man called Sonko who wants to be Nairobi's governor... if Sonko is elected as governor and I am elected president then I will resign on that very day)," he said.
