Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has responded to an article on Standard claiming he is the most dangerous man in Kenya.
In a Facebook post, Sonko affirmed that he is the most dreaded man in the country because he does not abet corruption.

He noted that he will not change his stand as far as the graft is concerned.
In the article, the writer argues that Sonko is untouchable and has failed the people of Nairobi, claims he has opposed.
"I wish to first start by thanking this newspaper owned by a son to a former President who managed to finish "corruption" in the country. The paper has made me be more popular and powerful in fighting all those I have named above," read part of his post.
He also said that he will not sit back and watch resources of the public being swindled at the expense of the taxpayer.
The flamboyant county boss divulged that he has done his best regardless of the criticisms he receives from different sides.
Sonko also affirmed that he will not allow the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officials to intimidate him.
"Let it be known that no amount of sponsoring of newspaper headlines, intimidation by EACC officials and clueless pressers by MPs can divert my attention from fighting graft and reclaiming back what belongs to the public," he posed.
He also said that the county of Nairobi was among the most corrupt, adding that he has transformed different departs since he took over.
On Friday, a section of elected leaders in Nairobi asked the governor to avoid sideshows and deliver on his promises.
