Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko has responded angrily to a viral resignation letter authored in his name, terming it as malicious.
The letter, dated July 23 and addressed to the speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly, announces the governor’s resignation citing various reasons, including deteriorating health and doctor’s advice.
“My health status has also greatly deteriorated and my doctors have advised that with the current pressure that I face every day, I must take a break from public life if not so I face imminent death… I hope the county Assembly will take care of the city with utmost diligence during the tough transition process,” reads the letter in part.
“The National Government has continually frustrated all my efforts to transform the city which includes; refusal to pay the county debts of over Sh80billion. Refusal by the Controller of Budget to approve Sh5billion in the 2017/2018 financial year. Refusal by the Inspector General to provide me even with 1 police bodyguard,” the letter reads.
Taking to social media to respond, the underfire County boss wrote: “Whoever is circulating this malicious nonsense should desist with immediate effect. I’m the elected Governor of Nairobi until the end of my term. Buree kabisaa.”
Must be the cartels working overtime.
