Majority Leader Claims Sonko is After His Life

  • Former Nairobi County Assembly Majority Leader Abdi Guyo is a troubled man. His life is in danger as he claimed on Thursday, October 10, 2019.

    Guyo stressed that if anything should happen to him, Governor Mike Sonko should be held accountable.

    Guyo's statement came a day after embattled Nairobi National Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi met a sturdy opposition when she resumed duty as Speaker of the County Assembly.

    Elachi's resumption of office clashed with Guyo's ouster after hired goons stormed into city hall and disrupted normal city hall operations.

    A letter by Sonko suggested that Guyo was to be replaced by Maringo Hamza MCA Mark Ndung'u who led other legislators in planning for Elachi's return.

    The letter dated October 4 disclosed that the governor despised Guyo's antics of undermining his leadership making it difficult for him to work in the county.

    "Consequently I am forwarding to you the name of Mark Ndung'u as the new majority leader designate. Kindly effect appropriately," the letter addressed to Elachi and Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju read.

    Guyo and Minority Whip Peter Imwatok had led MCAs in criticising the governor over frequent suspensions, claiming that he was interfering with roles of the County Public Service Board members.

    Elachi's comeback was filled with goons that were publicly shouting their allegiance to the governor while at the same time, accusing Matopeni MCA Guyo of causing a rift in the county.

    "Guyo respects the governor. You will know who this Nairobi belongs to," they shouted.

    Elachi, however, maintained that the governor did not have a hand in her return. She divulged that the constant insults she had received from Guyo prompted her return to the office.
