Sonko gives Kidero 7 days to apologize

27 June 2015, 10:38 William Korir

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko has given Governor Evans Kidero 7 days to apologize over remarks made about his involvement with drugs.

The Governor last week told a gathering in Nairobi that vehicles owned and manned by the Sonko Rescue Team were used to distribute drugs and that everyone knew about it.

The comments enraged Sonko, who has now called on Kidero to either apologize in public over the said comments or risk a lawsuit.

In a letter by his lawyers to Kidero, Sonko insists that unless a very public apology is made, he will resort to legal action.

" This notice is to be adhered to within 7 days in which legal action will be taken," the letter read in part.

The notice ironically comes a few hours after Kidero himself issued a similar notice to Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale over comments made in Mumias linking Kidero to theft.

Khalwale had said at a public function that Kidero was the master of thieves for running down the Mumias Sugar Company whilst he was the CEO and Khalwale asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to deal with him.

Through a letter signed by his lawyer Tom Ojienda, Kidero said that unless Khalwale apologizes, legal action will be taken over the matter.

" We have instructions to seek other incidental remedies against you without further notice or reference to you at your own risk as to costs and attendant consequences," Ojienda said.

"Our client demands that you immediately and unconditionally prominently publish an apology to Kidero in at least two newspapers of national circulation, in the next three days", he added.

On Wednesday, Khalwale said Kidero was among those responsible for the collapse of Mumias Sugar Company during his tenure as the CEO.

"On the fight of corruption I will support you, Mumias did not just die. You should pursue the criminals. The criminals who looted Mumias are led by their prefect governor Kidero, hold them accountable," Khalwale told President Uhuru Kenyatta.
