Little has been heard of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko since he was released from police custody.

On February 1st, Sonko was forced to spend the night behind bars after hours of grilling at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters along Kiambu road.

What followed was him facing seven counts of robbery with violence and five counts relating to assault.

One of the incidents allegedly took place at a Kindergarten in Buruburu estate, Nairobi in 2019.

Following investigations then, the DCI recommended Sonko be prosecuted over the events that unfolded following a visit to the children’s school by Sonko and several of his associates.

Sonko had been invited by the detectives to record a statement over his public utterances on the 2017 election violence. He declined to record his statement saying he had been gagged by a court.

It was then that police told him he would not be set free as there were other serious charges he would face.

His lawyers John Khaminwa, Assa Nyakundi, Evans Ondieki and George Kithi were present.

Their efforts to have him released on bail were unsuccessful.

Sonko was summoned by the DCI detectives to record statements after interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho complained he had been wrongly accused as the planner and executor of the said chaos.

He was detained, next on line was a terrorism case where he was accused on financing terror activities in the country.

The DCI, through an affidavit filed by Newton Thimangu, claimed that they suspected the former governor was recruiting a militia group to disrupt peace and stability of the nation which could lead to anarchy and civil disobedience.

After his release, he maintained a low profile but a recent video where he is seen working at a construction site as a casual worker has seemingly brought him back to the ‘light’ again.
