It was not a mere coincidence
In a clip posted to his Facebook profile, the Governor narrated a similar incident that took place in his private residence at Upper Hill, Nairobi.
"On May 30, five goons armed with machetes, pangas, bow and arrows were at my private residence in Upper Hill. I have clips of what transpired, we had to shoot in the air a number of times to disperse them, one did not manage to escape so we held him and questioned him," the governor stated.
He added that the suspect, Nicholas Mulwa Ndisya, was arrested after claiming that they had been sent to steal from the residence. The man was arraigned in court on May 31.
Passaris was sent to attack me and goons were sent to attack my daughter - Sonko
"On the same day they sent Passaris with accusations against me...I was shocked that eight goons armed with pangas and machetes were sent to attack my daughter tearing her clothes. I know there was a police woman involved, she's the one who pointed out my daughter to them.
"My daughter reported the matter to Kasarani police station, investigations were done and one David Kombo Lukas was arrested and taken to court. To prove that this is a ploy by 'the system', while the Senator is in ICU we don't even know if he'll make it, 'the system' intervened and the suspect was released on Sh20,000 cash bail," Sonko narrated.
He noted that the suspect was rearrested on Wednesday and was once again found brandishing a machete.
