Miguna said Sonko was clueless and thought that revenues fall from heaven. He also called Sonko a mediocre politician who didn’t have what it takes to rule Nairobi.

Sonko attacked back, calling Miguna a mad man who used to break walls with his head.

“You used to break houses, I have evidence, remove the cap if you don’t have a deep panga cut on your head,” Sonko told Miguna.

Incumbent Evans Kidero also attacked Sonko by referring to Sonko’s time in Shimo La Tewa prison Kidero. “I have never been jailed; I have never escaped from any prison,” Kidero said.

Sonko defended himself by pinpointing some of his achievements, among them the Sonko Rescue team which he said has been of immense help to Kenyans.
