Nairobi Governor Sonko in Big Shock as he is Wanted in Prison

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has expressed his disbelief following reports in the dailies that he is wanted in prison to go and complete his jail term.

It was reported that Shimo La Tewa Maximum Prison in Mombasa is looking for Sonko to serve not less than 12 months that was left on his jail term some years ago, when he allegedly escaped.

The Nairobi County boss is said to have left the facility only a month after his incarceration under unclear circumstances, according to information that hasreportedly been dug up by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

“Mbuvi Gideon Kioko was convicted of failing to attend court in CF 675/97 and was sentenced to pay Ksh200,000, which he didn’t raise,” the Daily Nation reported.

Now, the self-proclaimed bully of cartels said this was part of a plot to silence him.
But on his official Facebook page, he admitted that such a sentence existed, and said that it was later quashed.

“They are not telling Kenyans that the same sentence was quashed and reduced to the period already served,” Sonko wrote.

“They were even attempting to steal the High Court records but it never worked. A story for another day. Shindwe!”

The EACC is also pursuing the governor over allegations that he received a total of Ksh39 million in kickbacks that were wired into his bank accounts by his cronies’ firms, a claim that he has vehemently denied.
