Saturday December 31, 2016 – The beef between Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua and Nairobi Senator, Mike Mbuvi Sonko, reached fever pitch this last week just a few days to the end of the year.
This is after Mutua ‘destroyed’ Sonko’s palatial home along Mombasa Road and gave it a completely different look in order to scare him and his visitors away from Machakos.
The Machakos Governor sent his County goons on Wednesday night to demolish the signboard which showed the direction to Sonko’s family farm home for unknown reasons, making it even more difficult for those who want to visit the Nairobi Senator for the first time to locate his palatial residence located at Mua Hills in Machakos County.
Sources intimated that Mutua was running scared of Mike Sonko due to his generosity which he has extended to the people of Machakos, leaving the Machskos Governor looking stingy and a cheap con.
Besides, Mutua is worried about Mike Sonko’s night visits to his home, where he invites Nairobi MCAs for secret meetings ostensibly to plan his downfall.
Others added that Sonko brought development to Mua such as free wiring and installation of electricity in homes of people who cannot meet the costs.
Apparently, Mutua is said to be unhappy with these developments considering he is the area governor.
Two months ago in October 2016, it was reported that Sonko was in talks with Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to back him up for his Machakos county gubernatorial aspirations.
It was said Sonko heightened his political campaigns and was aided by Kalonzo despite maintaining that he would be vying on a Jubilee Party ticket for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.
Other county personnel in Machakos and Nairobi indicates that, their beef might be about women after all. Both men have tastes for beautiful women and a secret competition might be in progress leading to the current saga!.
