According to Kanyari, Sonko insisted on getting his cut upfront which the Bishop gave him after raising the amount from friends. Kanyari states that the deal was hoax and the senator even made attempts to have him arrested.
“They wanted to arrest me for maligning the name of the senator,” he said. “Anyway, I have forgiven and forgotten the incident. Sonko and I are now friends but I am very careful around him. Sh500,000 is a lot of money my brother,” He told The Standard.
Meanwhile Sonko has castigated fake prophets and asked the DPP to take legal actions against such rogue pastors.He took a swipe at men of cloth who are interested in political position in what seemed to be directed to Bishop Margaret Wanjiru:
“She is a church leader yet instead of preaching, she is busy bad-mouthing her opponents for political mileage. I wonder what example she is setting for her followers,” Sonko said.
