Unbowed by threats of impeachment by Nyeri Senator Wahome Wamatinga, Nairobi governor Johnstone Sakaja has stood his ground and said nobody will de-rail his grand plan to decongest the Capital City and bring order.
As the war between him and Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and his allies continued, Sakaja told them off saying Nairobi will change regardless of the noisemakers.
Sakaja said he will continue rolling out changes in Nairobi and that there was no turning back.
“I have heard talk that Nairobi was like this before I was born but I want to tell them that, that is why Iam governor. We must change our city and there is no shortcut about that,” said on Thursday.
One of the key changes he is implementing is re-location of matatu termini that caused an immediate clash with DP Gachagua and a host of Central Kenya MPs among them Githunguri MP Gathoni Wa Muchomba.
Gachagua was of the view that Sakaja should have consulted him before making decisions which affect the businesses of Mt Kenya people who voted for him (Sakaja).
The DP went ahead to say if it were not for him mobilising the Mt Kenya voters in Nairobi and asking them to vote for Sakaja, the governor would not have been elected.
The issue escalated after MPs from Western Kenya moved quickly to support Sakaja and threatened to impeach Gachagua triggering a response from Gachagua’s Nyeri backyard where his Senator has threatened to impeach Sakaja.
