“I swear! Haki yaki ya Mungu tena! I regret joining politics. It was one of the worst decisions I have ever made. As I retire to bed, I pray that God forgives me of my ignorance that led me to abandon his people in the wilderness after being forced by circumstances.
“Mungu nisamehe. Tomorrow lies in your hands and because you live I can courageously forge forward,” he wrote.
This came a days after the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) ordered Sonko to be charged afresh in his KSh 10 million graft case.
This was after the DPP amended the charge sheet to include an abuse of office charge.
Sonko is accused of demanding Sh10 million bribe from Web Tribe Ltd through ROG Security Limited.
The county boss allegedly demanded the cash as an inducement to facilitate payments to Web Tribe Limited by Nairobi City government.
The governor allegedly committed the offence in January last year.
