In a tweet seen by TUKO.co.ke, Ngunyi claimed Polycarp should not have asked for Sonko's trust citing he is a thief.
The controversial analyst added that Polycarp should not have worked with Sonko on trust basis claiming trust is meant for girls and boys who are in a relationship.
"The Currency of POLITICS is Not TRUST. It is common INTERESTS. Trust is for GIRLS, if you are a BOY. Polycarp should not have asked for Sonko's TRUST. Sonko is NOT a Girl. He is a TH*G."
