Sonko goes ham in phone call to city tycoon linked to Kayole demolitions – AUDIO

An expletives-laden telephone conversation between Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and a city tycoon he links to the demolitions in Kayole has leaked online.

A recording of the eight-minute-long conversation captures a furious Governor Sonko hurling abuses and threatening the tycoon whom he accuses of using fake documents to claim ownership of the 20-acre land in Kayole.

The phone call begins with Sonko identifying himself to the other person on the line and he then proceeds to politely ask him why he never approached his office for possible compensation on the land dispute.

The tycoon defended himself by stating that the matter had been dragging in court for ten years as he tried to find a solution with no success.

Tempers quickly flare and Sonko starts hurling insults at the man. He at some point dares the man to take him to court.

Earlier, the governor had issued an executive order halting the demolition of buildings in the county in the festive season.
