Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Tuesday sent a cryptic message to those in government saying God is on his side.

Ever since he handed over some key functions to the National Government, Sonko has appeared to hint at being frustrated by high ranking state officials.

“They have the army, the police & Gov't Agencies to intimidate me but I have God & His people as my only Shield & Saviour.

“May your will be done. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, & the love of God, & the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all now & forevermore,” wrote Sonko.

This comes just a week after he described some leaders as drunk with power.

In a rant posted on Twitter, Sonko hit out at leaders who sit at Harambee House although he did not mention any names.

“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,” he wrote.

On why he signed the agreement to transfer certain functions to the State, Sonko recently denied claims that he was forced into the deal that clipped his powers.

 “There is no back room deal between the president and me in handing some county functions to National Government. After all, I have a pending corruption case. Nobody forced me to sign any agreement.”
