Mike Sonko’s message for people at Harambee House who are drunk with power
I have a message to some of my friends at Harambee House who are drunk with power. Power comes, power goes, power is temporary, and transient but the will of the people, and the will of God, is eternal.
In the 90’s, Hon. Nicholas Biwott was a powerful man. Before his demise he used to sit lonely at a corner at Serena Hotel. Few people bothered to say hi to him. Many others came before him & many others after him. But the Supreme Will of God has never faltered, neither floundered.
Sometimes in 2006, there was a stand off between hawkers and Kenya Police Service. The current President stepped in to help quell the crisis, but his efforts did not succeed.
Senior officers at the OP directed the then Nairobi PPO to instruct his officers on the ground to disperse the hawkers and the then the leader of official opposition Uhuru Kenyatta by tear gassing them. Nobody then knew that he would one day become President.
