#SonkoLeaks: Passaris seeks state agencies to block Sonko from all social media platforms

Share

Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris has called on the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) to disable all the social media accounts belonging to former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.


While speaking in Nairobi, the legislator said that Sonko’s recent online activities warrant the state to ban him from using any social media platform.

In several clips that went viral, the controversial former Nairobi City County boss shared videos implicating various individuals, including judicial officials, in alleged corruption scandals.

One of the recorded clips shared publicly by Sonko showed a woman in a compromising situation, prompting Passaris’ pursuit.
Passaris argues that the indecent exposure of the woman in the clip amounts to infringement and gross violation of the right of a woman, and now seeks the intervention of state agencies to stem out forms of gender-based violence.

“That kind of violence and violation of a woman is wrong by every standard and I call on the DCI to take action against him because as a country, you can block someone who has terrorized and abused women on social media platforms,” she said.

However, Sonko justified his recent acts as a source of crucial evidence against abuse of public office and vows to continue.

On Tuesday, sonko received a court order barring him from publishing information that he claims is evidence of the ongoing corruption in the judiciary.

Sonko’s former lawyers, also adversely mentioned in his leaks, obtained the orders stopping him from further publishing any exposé against them pending a hearing of their case.
