Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has said politicking in church won’t be allowed in Nairobi County and leaders should desist from discussing 2022 politics in churches. Speaking during the COTU prayer day at St Stephens ACK in Nairobi, Sonko termed the ‘tanga tanga’ and ‘kieleweke’ politics as foolish, “Let’s not come here with tanga tanga and kieleweke politics, that is foolish politics and it shouldn’t be brought to church. In Nairobi we’ll start chasing you if you come to discuss matters 2022.”

The Nairobi Governor said they support the handshake and the graft war. He further faulted the government’s housing levy, intimating that low earning Kenyans will suffer. “When it comes to the housing levy, if I correct the government it doesn’t mean I oppose President Uhuru,” he said, “He is my friend, brother and political mentor.” He said the President’s advisors who brought up the idea may be the problem. He added that he’ll look for the Head of State and tell him that Kenyans are complaining about the levy.
