Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has claimed the nightclub attack on his eldest daughter and a married Senator on Madaraka Day was part of a plot to silence him.

Sonko’s daughter Agnes Saumu Mbuvi and Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip were attacked by assailants outside Memphis Lounge on Madaraka Day.

Sonko told his Facebook followers that well-connected people in government are out to intimidate him

He did not support the claims.

“But the president is a good person and is not part of this scheme,” said Sonko.

“My daughter was watching football with some friends including a Senator. She has her freedom, she is a mother. I was shocked eight goons armed with pangas, as she was going to the toilet they wanted to attack her, she screamed. During this altercation, the Senator was severely injured and is still at the ICU. We do not know if he will make it,” Sonko posted.

Kasarani OCPD Peter Kimani said they were holding a bouncer from Memphis Lounge and also looking for eight more people connected to the Sunday morning attack.

The club is located at the Safari Business Lounge near the United States International University and is very popular with students.

Terror suspect arrested for threatening to kill DCI Kinoti 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

A Nairobi woman who was recently arrested for sending letters laced with deadly chemicals to the Canadian embassy in Nairobi has yet again been found on the wrong side of the law.

Tracy Wairimu Ndegwa was arrested on Thursday, August 6, for threatening to kill the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti.

Wairimu is reported to have threatened to kill the DCI boss shortly after she was released to go for a mental checkup at DCI headquarters.

She was to be charged on Friday, August 7, but her arraignment coincided with her appointment at the Mathari Mental Hospital where she was to undergo mental checkup.

Like in the case of the Canadian embassy, the woman sent Kinoti letters containing a white powder and alleged he would die after inhaling the powder.

Prior to sending the letters laced with chemicals to the Canadian envoy Lisa Stadelbauer, Wairimu had been arraigned at Milimani Law Courts for threatening to kill another person and was released on KSh 50,000 bond.

She was to be charged before senior resident magistrate Charles Mwaniki of the Kibera Law Courts for threatening to kill Stadelbauer but the matter was postponed until August 24, 2020.

The suspect was released on KSh 100,000 bond and allowed to honour her appointment with the mental hospital until August 24 when she will be arraigned for the two offences of threatening to kill Kinoti and Stadelbauer.
