Summons by EACC

EACC sleuths summoned Sonko last week for allegedly lying in his self-declaration form when he sought clearance to contest for governorship.

A week ago the Nairobi Governor termed the summons as a witch hunt adding that he will not be intimidated.

EACC CEO Twalib Mbarak, through a letter asked Sonko to present himself at the Integrity Center to record a statement which will facilitate investigations.

The commission is investigating allegations that you provided false information to the commission in your self-declaration form dated 9 March 2017 submitted to the commission,” Mbarak stated in a notice dated October 28.

Sonko's take

In a Facebook post Sonko stated: “No amount of witch hunt or intimidation shall stop me from addressing the real issues I’m pursuing for the public.”

He added: “I have not been shying away from my past which in several occasions I have reiterated that it should not affect or determine my current status and any future ambition in any way.”
