‘Sonko Can Run County Affairs From Home’ City Hall Official Says


sonkoNairobi Governor Mike Sonko can run the county from wherever he pleases, City Hall Deputy Director of Communication Elkana Jacob has said.

The communications director has also refuted claims that the county boss is in hiding after the government scaled down his security detail from 15 to 5 officers.

“I don’t know why people are claiming that Governor Mike Sonko is under ‘siege’. The City Governor has homes in several towns: Garissa, Kisumu, Mombasa, Kilifi, Malindi, Machakos, Nairobi, among others,” a statement reads in part.

Mr Jacob also insisted that Sonko has the right to hold meetings in any of his homes, but that does not mean that ‘he is in hiding.’
