Waititu goes after ‘mad man’ Sonko on plans to decongest CBD

Kiambu governor Ferdinard Waititu over the weekend had unkind words for his Nairobi counterpart regarding the plans to decongest the city centre.

Waititu faulted Mike Sonko on his tried and failed effort to bar Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) from the city centre.

The Kiambu governor referred to Sonko as a ‘mad man’ who is inconsiderate to business owners in the matatu industry.

He was speaking as the new patron of a lobby group for matatu owners in an event where the industry players protested the proposed implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system on major city roads.

The Kiambu governor accused Sonko’s administration of not involving residents through public participation in the proposed BRT.

He urged city voters to consider electing a people’s servant in the next election.

This is not the first time Waititu has publicly criticised Sonko’s work in the city. Last year he went after him regarding the demolition of buildings on riparian land.
