Speaking on the Gidi and Ghost radio show, the Senator who is running to become Governor of Kenya's Capital, Nairobi, talked about how the top politicians who seem to be fierce enemies in public, are really all close friends in private.

"Kenya haina servants quarter- ati tuichome, alafu twende uko tungojee ijengwe. We need each other. The dreams of the Kikuyu are not opposed to the hopes of the Luo. Tukumbuke sisi ni mandugu.

Hawa akina Uhuru, Ruto, Raila, Musalia. Hao ni watu nawajua, wamekuja ata kwangu. Ni marafiki zangu. Usipigane ju ya hao watu, ni mabeste. Ni marafiki wanafanya, biashara pamoja, watoto wao wanakatiana. Hautaona watoto wao hapo kwa maandamano. Ni mtoto wa masikini ataenda kwa maandamano. Let us not bleed so that they lead. Sisi ndiyo tunajua utamu wa amani na uchungu wa vita. Let us remain as one people."
