Former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has renewed his feud with current City Manager Johnson Sakaja, accusing him of bullying the county government.
Sonko slammed the City Manager in an interview with Nation, saying he should be grateful that "Uhuru messed" his chances of being on the ballot because he would not have been Governor if he had run.
"Ni Uhuru, alileta ujuaji ya pesa nane. However, ningekua debe haungekua Governor wa Nairobi."
Sonko has accused former President Uhuru Kenyatta of orchestrating his deposition.
Uhuru has also admitted that he played a role in Sonko's removal from office.
Several courts, including the Supreme Court, upheld his impeachment, rendering him unfit to run for any elective office.
Sonko's feud with Sakaja began after he received "numerous complaints" from a group of leaders and City residents who he claimed were unhappy with the governor's leadership style.
"Respect Nairobi's great people. Lazima wananchi wakung'owe na kung'olewa. "We can use popular power to remove you from that seat," he said.
He also warned the Governor that if he attempts to disrespect the UDA party, President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua will not tolerate it.
"Tumekunyamazia sana because we admire you. But, ukianza kudharau UDA, President and Deputy President, I am confident we will wreak havoc.
He urged the governor to consult with all stakeholders before making major decisions, arguing that ignoring key decisions made by the County Assembly is unacceptable.
"Everyone, including the business community, deserves to be respected. MCAs have lifted the ban on nightclubs, but you insist it remains in place. Wananchi, wacha kudharau."
