He further accused the media of maliciously editing the clip in which he is heard declaring himself acting President.
“I hereby clarify that my utterances were altered in the edited clip to depict my social, political and influence based position as challenging the presidency. I uphold my sworn oath to respect the Presidency and urge my fellow political leaders, regardless of their divide, to respect the same,” the Senator added.
At the same time, Sonko, who is eying the Nairobi gubernatorial seat, accused Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko of being incompetent for directing that action be taken against him over the utterances at the burial.
“Following the allegations, I was bowled over by the declaration by our DPP, my friend Keriako Tobiko, to investigate and question me. I am saddened by the fact that Keriako was reacting to his declaration which was propelled by dubious claims which his office ought to have thoroughly investigated.
It’s a shame that the DPP would be influenced to act on such claims. It’s an act of incompetence,” Sonko wrote on his social media accounts.
