Sonko's relatives cry for Senator's help

06 March 2015, 16:19

Nairobi - A man claiming to be Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko’s relative is looking for him to help him out of lifelong poverty.

George Kirimi, a resident from Kathieriri village in Central Imenti says that his late father is a first cousin to Sonko’s mother Saumu Mukami Mbuvi.

Kirimi, a stone miner in Kathieriri village, said that his family has faced a hard life after being manual laborers all their life without a chance of coming out of their impoverished lives.

“I request help as family and as a human. Sonko is now our last resort to lead an average life out of poverty without asking for much”, he said.

Kirimi also requested the lavish Nairobi senator to visit and know where his maternal grandfather Hamisi M’Meru came from before relocating to live in Coast province the rest of his life.

He added that Sonko’s uncle Keya Hamisi is a regular visitor in Meru, latest visiting in last year to attend burial of a freedom fighter who Keya said was a great childhood friend.

Other living cousins to the Nairobi Senator in the village are Jane Kanini and Esther Nyegera aside the lates Joseph Ndege and Ngiri Hamisi among others.
