Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has received a backlash from a section of Kenyans over his abusive remarks on Nairobi Women representative Esther Passaris.
Sonko on Saturday during Madaraka Day Celebrations dressed down Passaris with words telling her that he is not her husband to pick her calls whenever she wanted.
“I will pick your calls when I am free. I am not your husband that I should be picking your calls any time you want,” Sonko told Passaris.
Sonko’s remarks forced Passaris to walk out to which he further urged her to go on and leave.
Passaris had criticised Sonko’s manner of leadership saying that many projects had stalled.
She further urged the governor to mend ways with Starehe MP Charles Njagua popularly known as Jaguar.
Federation of Women Lawyers called for Sonko’s arrest saying that his remarks were in contravention of of Chapter Six of the constitution.
“It was wrong. He is a public officer and should not engage in such. Unfortunately there is a continuous disregard of Chapter Six by some leaders,” said FIDA Executive Director Teressa Omondi.
“Good for you sister
@EstherPassaris for walking out. The governor was disrespectful, his usual uncouth, and wearing kanjo inspector uniform made him more pathetic,” stated Wandia Njoya.
