Fireworks as Sonko’s interview on JKL is cut short



Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s interview on Jeff Koinange Live show turned ugly on Wednesday night, forcing Citizen TV editors to abruptly cut it short.

The decision to stop the interview midway was prompted by Sonko’s claims that he has damning evidence against Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris.

Governor Sonko insisted he was ready to proceed with the interview to no avail.


Editors at the TV station reasoned that they had to first verify whatever documents Sonko was tabling before allowing him to display them on air.

“Due to standards and quality control here at Royal Media Services Governor it looks like we cannot continue with this interview,” host Jeff Koinange told the governor.

Sonko, in his response on social media shortly after, accused Citizen TV of being “one-sided’ and ‘shying away from the real facts”.

During the interview, Sonko had presented an audio clip and receipts as proof of Esther Passaris’s campaign to paint him in bad light.

Differences between the Governor and Woman Rep played out on Saturday, during Madaraka Day celebrations, after Passaris raised concerns over delayed approval of projects by the county government.

Sonko responded by asking her why was calling him all the time.

“Unanipigia simu mimi si bwana yako,” Sonko said.


The remarks saw Passaris walk out from the venue of the celebrations.

On Monday at City Hall, Sonko said Passaris had attacked him  and it was modest of him to reply to her without showing cowardice.

“I didn’t abuse her. I told her I am not her husband, which is true. Why should I apologise for speaking the truth?” Sonko asked.

This is not the first time Sonko’s interview is being cut short on Citizen TV. In 2016, his interview was abruptly stopped as he prepared to table evidence linking then Governor Evans Kidero to various misdeeds in the city, including alleged grabbing of a Kilimani property and the death of the wife of the property owner.

Gilad Millo’s message as son joins Israel Defense Forces



Nairobi-based ex-diplomat Gilad Millo is a happy father after his firstborn son Omer got into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) as a paratrooper.

Celebrating his son, the singer shared it was hard saying goodbye to his 20-year-old son.

“I hugged you this morning for as long as I could until it was time to let you go. How can a father possibly be prouder?”

“My son, my boy, my firstborn, my pride, my Omer sending you off today to join the Israel Defense Force, as a paratrooper knowing that tomorrow mom and I are on a plane back to Kenya, was one of the more difficult moments we’ve known since you came into this world a little over 20 years ago,” he wrote.

In an Instagram post, Millo revealed that Omer decided to return to their native country singly, a state he represented for long as deputy head of mission at the Israeli Embassy in Nairobi.

“This is the choice you made, to be a real Israeli, to return to Israel alone and serve your country as a lone soldier and as you say, to aim as high as you can and give it your all. I ask God to protect and keep you healthy, safe, happy and strong! Counting the days till I can hug you again. Love you to the moon and back – your very proud Dad!”

“The way my family approaches relationships is, until it is dead serious I don’t want to introduce anyone. My self-esteem has always been based on my career and not on relationships. It’s not like I’m dying to show off a man,” she said.
