Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has illegally secured the release of Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s wife, Susan Wangare.
In an audio conversation shared online, Sonko is heard ordering an officer by the name Ochanda who had arrested Waititu’s wife and others to release Wangari on a Ksh 50,000 cash bail.
This he said without waiting for the arraignment of Wangari in court.
Wangari and 14 other people were arrested on Wednesday in connection with illegal and unapproved construction of a building in Nairobi.
Also detained were the owners of the Jamii Bora Building and Delta Hotel.
He however insisted that Wangari’s arrest warrants were from above going as far as invoking Waita’s name in the conversation with Waititu.
