Former Nairobi County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has broken his silence tendering his heartfelt apologies to the entire Muslim Community in the Country.
This is after the former County chief delayed in his annual foodstuff distributions to the faithful’s needy population during this holy month of Ramadhan.
In his statement earlier today, Sonko said that his team was working on modalities to ensure that his donations for the month are done in strict compliance with the laid down Ministry of Health protocols on Covid-19 before the distribution exercise kick starts.
The former Makadara legislator added that the helping hand will be extended to non-Muslim needy families as well, across the county.
Sonko and his rescue team have in the past years dished out Iftar foodstuff at least two days before the beginning of the Ramadhan period.
“This is to apologize to all our Muslim brothers and Sisters for this year’s delay in distributing iftar foodstuffs to the needy families, unlike previous years where we used to do it at least a day or two before the start of Ramadhan. However, we are putting measures in place to ensure we comply with the Ministry of health’s covid-19 protocols before we start the exercise, which shall also be extended to other non-Muslim needy families in Nairobi County,” said Mike Sonko.
Sonko’s philanthropic works have been witnessed across the country with the former Senator helping the youth and vulnerable to acquire jobs from which to put food on the table and even educates the poor.
