    Kibicho went to DCI on Monday, January 25, to record a statement in which he threatened to sue Sonko for damaging his reputation.

    Kibicho, in a press address from his office, stated that he would be pressing charges against Sonko over the allegations. He also promised to sue Sonko for past indiscretions directed at him, but which had gone unpunished.

    “I walked to DCI to record a statement against Sonko because he needs to come on the table and provide evidence on the criminality he is alleging we committed with him.

    “Sonko has continued assassination of my character since he left the seat… As a private citizen I have broken the cycle and decided enough is enough… He has made very very wild allegations against me…Sonko should give answers and say where we were in 2017 together with him,” stated Kibicho.

    “He better be prepared, he has admitted to committing crime… He will deal with my character assassination. I’m going for him this week,” he added

    While addressing members of the public at a rally in Dagoretti South on Sunday, January 24, 2021, Sonko alleged that he along with Kibicho, and other state officials, stage-managed some of the chaos experienced in the country during the 2017 general election.

    The former Nairobi Governor accused the “deep state” and “system” of the chaos experienced in the country in 2017.

    Sonko alleged that he was involved in the planning of the chaos with the aim of portraying the ODM Party as the culprits.
