A video of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko slapping a man has been posted on Twitter.
In the video, an unidentified man is seen being escorted by a group of four men. These men hand the victim over to Sonko, who slaps him.
It is alleged that the incident took place in Madiwa, Eastleigh where, according to the county boss, a private developer had illegally demolished some buildings.
It is yet to be established why Sonko slapped the man.
A section of Kenyans took offence with Sonko’s move, questioning his right to slap people. Others called on relevant authorities to intervene and charge the county boss with assault.
