Sonko caused a spectacle at the burial of former Kathiani Member of Parliament (MP) Wavinya Ndeti’s husband after his remarks.
“The President is in Togo and his Deputy is in France. I am now the third in command and the acting President of the Republic of Kenya. All these police officers and vehicles you see are here because am now the acting President,” Sonko said on Friday.
The flamboyant Senator, however, accused the media of maliciously editing the clip to depict his “social, political and influence-based position as challenging the presidency”.
