Turn back to God and ask for forgiveness – Former Nairobi speaker Elachi reacts to Sonko’s impeachment

Former Nairobi County Speaker Beatrice Elachi on Friday 4 December 2020 took a dig at County boss Mike Sonko following his impeachment that saw 88 out of 122 MCAs support his removal from office.

While speaking to the media, Elachi said that Mike Sonko was at the forefront of making sure that she resigned.

She added that everything that the former Makadara Member of Parliament was going through was because of how he had been treating others.

Elachi advised Sonko to turn back to God and ask for forgiveness as many people had shed tears because of him.

“He asked the Jubilee Party leadership to tell President Uhuru Kenyatta that once Elachi was let go, things would be okay in Nairobi. He did not care what my kids would eat. But I gave up for the sake of Nairobi.”

“To the governor, turn back to God and ask for forgiveness. There are things that you do and probably those around you do not tell. You should remember that there are many people who have shed tears because of you maybe that’s why all this is happening,” Elachi stated.

Elachi went on to touch on corrupt leaders who are charged in court misappropriation and embezzlement of funds only to be bailed out by Kenyans.

She added that it is very important to question the wealth of some leaders.

The former nominated Senator resigned in August this year citing frustrations and threats to her life as some of the reasons for stepping down.

Mike Sonko was on Thursday 3 December impeached over allegations of gross misconduct and abuse of office.

Earlier on, Sonko had flown 38 MCAs out of Nairobi to reportedly counter his impeachment.

In his argument, Sonko had claimed that the people working had to bring him down had resorted to intimidation and dirty tricks to achieve their selfish interests.

He explained that about 70 MCAs had filed complaints with police on impersonation of their emails by rogue Assembly officials who wanted to interfere with online voting on his impeachment motion.
