Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has claimed that his daughter’s attack at a nightclub was a plot to silence him.
Sonko claims that well-connected people in government are out to intimidate him
“But the president is a good person and is not part of this scheme,” said Sonko.
Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip, who was in the company of Sonko’s daughter, Saumu Mbuvi, was also attacked by unknown assailants outside Memphis lounge on Madaraka day.
Senators want Interior Secretary Fred Matiang’i to explain what he is doing to ensure their safety after one of their own was attacked .
Majority leader Kipchumbe Murkomen demanded that the committee on security provide direction.
Senators questioned how suspects arrested in senators Loitiptip’s and Saumu’s attack were released on sh.20,000 bond. They argued it was fast and the figure was too low.
“In this country for the last few years, suspects have been held for weeks’ or days for proper investigations to be done. Even the money used as bail is very high, how were the suspects arrested in the senator’s case released?” Mr Murkomen wondered.
Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jnr (Makueni) termed the attack an attempted murder.
