I would have shot him – Sonko admits

Sonko responds to involvement in gun drama

Speaking during an interview on KTN, Mr. Sonko claimed that Joseph Lenguris, the landlord of a disputed 3.5 acre, hired goons who ambushed him with a panga on Friday, January 12, 2018, at 2 am.

"Ningekuwa na bunduki ningemshoot kwa sababu walinikata na panga. Hiyo ingekuwa self defence,” he said while displaying where the panga landed on his hand.

The Governor alleged that Lenguris had hired armed goons who ambushed his (Sonko's) relatives and threatened to evict them in the middle of the night.

Sonko’s allegations come amid reports that he stormed the private property in the company of armed men and opened fire in the air to scare away the occupants.

According to Lenguris, the flamboyant Governor dramatically ambushed them with siren-blowing vehicles and immediately they were inside the compound, his goons started shooting in the air indiscriminately. "Alikuja saa nane za usiku na zile gari zake za kupiga maalarm wakaanza kutumimina risasi," he said.

It is alleged that the landlord and his wife Monica Hata have been in a dispute with Sonko’s cousin - Caroline Mwandiko - after she bought the land in 2013.

Lenguris accuses the Governor’s cousin of not paying the full amount of Sh23 million for the 3.5-acre piece of land even after a formal agreement they had. This is according to papers he showed NTV.

The middle-aged man alleged that the Governor’s family forcefully ejected them out of the house even before clearing the debt adding that they have been living in shelters since then.

However, Mr. Sonko dismissed  Lenguris stating that it was simply a matter of land grabbing which he will not tolerate.
