Mike Sonko speaks after being banned from travelling to the US

Flamboyant politician Mike Sonko has issued a statement after he was banned from travelling to the United States over corruption, abuse of office and bribery allegations.

In an announcement made at the US Embassy in Nairobi by Counselor for Public Affairs Eric Watnik, Sonko’s immediate family members were also banned from travelling to the US.

US Department of State indicated that Sonko solicited bribes and kickbacks in exchange for awarding government contracts to his associates.

While responding to the ban, Sonko wondered why the ban came just after he announced his interest for the Nairobi Gubernatorial seat adding that the US embassy should come out and tell Kenyans the truth.

“I’ve learned of news barring my family and me from traveling to the United States Of America (USA) over unverified corruption allegations against me. I’ve not been convicted on any corruption related charges because the cases are still pending in court awaiting judgement. There are only 2 governors who’ve been charged in a court of law for giving tenders to their wives and kids but not me.

“None of my family members was ever awarded any tender by the county when I was in office and it’s in the public dormain, the embassy should come out publicly and tell Kenyans the truth. My wife and kids have never supplied even a spoon or toilet paper to city hall either directly or indirectly,” Sonko stated.

The former Nairobi governor further asked the US government to investigate their ambassador in Kenya.

“I’m urging the USA to investigate their ambassador and focus on fighting PUTIN who’s killed millions of innocent lives in Ukraine just the way they went for Osama bin laden,” he stated.
