@Blacklebo Whose hero?
@mikejush Had presented himself to the nearst police station , would he have gone through that ordeal ?? Our leaders crave attension and love stupid drama, i dont sympathise with him , lets stop izi childish dramas , the court needs to be firm and
@Munanyakhi A Kamba politician defending one of their own then we understand why Rift Valley Legislators are behind Sonko
@AkokoElly Senator there's this video that went viral this week of Sonko slapping someone in the company of his aides, what say you? Did you condemn it?
@FatakanwaS Why I am I not surprised by this statement? Kenyans with tribal politics. You had to defend him because ni "mtu wetu".
@nellylngt This clearly shows how innocent Kenyan souls die in the hands of the men in blue uniform🙄
@CKMahea He is definitely a VILLAIN in the eyes of almost EVERYONE in Kenya..... How does such an arrest make anyone a HERO Mutula? Don't you also want to be a HERO? Get arrested like that.... ata mama mboga ata kudharau.
@nzomos The way he was screaming.. Hero wa wapi
@SenMutula Where was he for close to 10 hours? If he is innocent he could have presented himself early enough. Ikiwa ameiba pesa arudishwe Shimo la Tewa.
@SenMutula Wacha mafeelings.Sonko is an escaped convict and the state is legally required to rearrest him and return him to prison to complete his sentence.
