Former Nairobi County governor Mike Sonko has today broken his silence speaking for the first time after securing his release from the police cells where he has been for close to a month.
The former County chief was released on a cash bail of Ksh.500,000, and has since expressed his appreciation to the Kenyans who have been praying for his release.
The former governor went ahead to share a video of members a church praying for him while still in cells and promised to join them in prayers once he is fully well.
“No matter how big or small this church is, whether in the slums or any part of Kenya, I just want to thank you so so much for praying for my release,” said Sonko on Facebook.
“I shall come to fellowship with you all once I fully recover and discharged from hospital. I also want to thank all those who were praying for me whether from different churches, mosques, or religious temples,” he stated.
The governor had pleaded not guilty to the terror charges he was facing before the Kahawa chief magistrate Diana Mochache, and was released.
He is alleged to have participated in terror activities by recruiting members of the group in the company of others. “On or before January 1, 2021, at an unknown place within the Republic of Kenya, you (Mike Sonko) jointly with others not before Court knowingly recruited unknown persons to commit or participate in the commission of a terrorist act in contravention of the said Act,” read the charge sheet in part.
