WATCH: Stop hiding behind UDA colours, Kenya Kwanza MCAs tell Sakaja

The bad blood between Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja and United Democratic Alliance (UDA) MCAs continues to deepen.

This is after Kenya Kwanza Alliance MCAs in the County Assembly alleged that the governor has been holding secret meetings with Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leaders.

Speaking to the media on Tuesday at City Hall, the MCAs led by the Minority Leader Anthony Kiragu alleged that the governor has been held hostage by the opposition MCAs who are the majority in the County Assembly.

“We are appealing to him not to wear a yellow t-shirt during the day and a blue one night. He needs to come out clear,” Mr Kiragu said.

The MCAs have also asked the governor to come out of boardroom meetings and work for the Nairobi residents who elected him on the UDA party ticket.

“We want him to come out and declare his stand. The people of Nairobi are waiting for services. More than six months after he was elected, there is no single ongoing project. No road is being constructed today, no pipe is distributing water to the people of Nairobi,” Kiragu said.

The Governor has also been criticized by his party for flying in a private chopper from Nairobi to Kisumu yet he has hardly received a six-month salary.

“We are concerned that a governor who could not afford posters for his campaigns is now moving across the county with a chopper sponsoring students who do not come from the county. I want to remind Kenyans that he has hardly been paid six-month salaries yet he is here every day with choppers and throwing parties,” Kiragu said.

The Minority Leader also said that the governor is disrespecting the party leader President William Ruto for dining with the Azimio.

However, in his post on social media, the governor responded to the allegations of using public money to hire choppers, saying that he paid the chopper to tour four counties using money from his pocket.

Meanwhile, Governor Sakaja has said he has no apology for working with Azimio leaders since the people who elected him in Nairobi needs services irrespective of their voting pattern.
