Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has told off his critics over abuse remarks hauled at him last weekend towards Nairobi Women representative Ester Passaris, saying he will not apologize.
Speaking at Charter Hall today Sonko says his remarks were triggered by Passaris utterances where he claims the women representative tried to embarrass him in full glare of the media and public by linking his money source and good deeds to corruption.
He says Passaris should tell Kenyans the truth of what transpired before lying to Kenyans that he abused her at Madaraka Day event.
‘‘I will not apologise to Passaris and I owe no one apology and my difference with Passaris should not be taken out of context i don’t disrespect women.. she cannot question my money in the public and why i help people.’’ He stated.
He further accused Pasaris of not appreciating what the county is doing for her by supporting her trips abroad .
Sonko says all Passaris’ per diem trips are being paid by the county government of Nairobi and that she has no excuse to lecture him on matters of respect.
Meanwhile FIDA have called for the arrest of the governor saying he contravenes Chapter 6 of the constitution that requires public servants to hold high level integrity.
Pasaris questioned Sonko’s consistent habit of giving out handouts to voters and even the source of his money but in a quick rejoinder at the same event he ‘insulted’ her a move that saw Passaris walking out of the event.
