Former Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko has apologized to the Muslim faithful, for the delay in distributing foodstuff to needy families for Ramadhan.
Why Mike Sonko has apologized to the Muslim Community
In a statement, Sonko said that his team is working on measures to ensure they comply with Ministry of Health protocols on Covid-19 before the distribution exercise begins.
He went on to say that the exercise will be extended to non-Muslim needy families as well, across the city county.
Mike Sonko and his team have in the previous years distributed Iftar foodstuff at least two days before the commencement of the Ramadhan period.
“This is to apologize to all our Muslim brothers and Sisters for this year's delay in distributing iftar foodstuffs to the needy families unlike previous years where we used to do it at least a day or two before the start of Ramadhan. However, we are putting measures in place to ensure we comply with the Ministry of health's covid-19 protocols before we start the exercise, which shall also be extended to other non Muslim needy families in Nairobi County,” said Mike Sonko.
