Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi alias Sonko on Monday turned to social media to demand that Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho respect President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Jubilee government.
This comes few days after Sonko and Joho clashed in public on Saturday during a ceremony presided over by President Uhuru to issue Land title deeds to squatters living in a controversial Waitiki Land in Likoni, Mombasa.
In a statement released on Monday through his twitter handle, Mike Sonko told Governor Joho that as much as he respect him , he must not blackmail , embarrass and intimidate the President in Public.
“I will not sit back and watch leaders such as the Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho, whom I respect much play politics and mislead the people of Mombasa.” Sonko said.
“I can therefore not sit back and watch people who think as if they’re more important than a democratically elected President when they are only out to blackmail, embarrass and intimidate the President in Public” Sonoko continued.
The two exchanged harsh words in public the President and his deputy William Ruto watched.
