How Anne Kananu defended relationship with Sonko

The vetting committee was keen to assess Ms Kananu's relationship with impeached Governor Mike Sonko having asked her about it twice.

"My relationship with former governor was work based. The disaster management docket I hold at City Hall required regular consultation with the governor.

"I am one person who respects the rule of law. I can never intimidate, influence or interfere with processes. I have never had any integrity issues," she stated.
