After claiming he knew who were the masterminds of chaos in 2017 polls, Sonko now faces multiple charges and is detained at Kamiti.
Kenyans fear for the former Nairobi governor as his situation is likened with Miguna Miguna and a trend that questions the Justice system.
Here are reactions from Lawyers and other government officials:
Samson Cherargei: “What they are doing to Sonko is pure political witch-hunt. I challenged NCIC to have a discussion with the President after he mentioned two tribes for long. Politicians taken to court by NCIC have an affiliation to DP Ruto.”
Otiende Amollo: “Sonko has been reckless with his speeches & actions lately. Someone did not remind him that in law, you can only confess against yourself not against somebody else even if we committed the offence together.”
The DCI wants to detain Sonko for 30 days pending investigations citing several counts against Sonko, including his being accused of procuring uniform resembling military attire, which he has previously been spotted wearing in contravention of the rules governing its use.
