A section of women from Mombasa has vowed to strip naked if the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) does not stop investigating Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
Speaking from Moi Avenue in Mombasa County, the women stated that the governor was being harassed, adding that they would take action if the anti-corruption agency failed to stop the inquest.
“We are very bitter and we want to talk about how Sonko is being treated. We are not happy because of the harassment he is undergoing because he is a Coastarian and is young.
“We want to tell the government that if they want us to strip so that we can show how tired we are about these allegations, then, we will strip,” one of the women known as Mildred Odinga spoke.
Women from Mombasa County on Friday, November 8, vowed to strip naked if EACC continued to harass Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.
Further, she stated that Sonko was not only helping Nairobi residents, but also those who reside in other counties.
“If there are corruption allegations, then, they took place before Sonko’s tenure. Why aren’t they giving Sonko a chance to lead?” Mildred questioned.
The governor, on Wednesday, November 6, was summoned to Integrity Centre to shed more light on a self-declaration form submitted to the agency before he was elected.
On Monday, November 4, Sonko claimed that an EACC official was out to frustrate him due to his sustained fight against land grabbing in Nairobi.
His supporters had stormed the anti-graft agency’s headquarters to protest the probe.
Smoke filled the air as the loyal supporters scampered for safety after tear gas canisters were hurled at them.
