Just 24 hours earlier Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko was verbally attacking Woman Rep Esther Passaris, telling her he isn’t his husband to pick her calls every time she calss.
“Mimi si bwana yako nishike simu zako kila wakati,” Sonko said during Madaraka Day celebrations at Pumwani High School.
This forced Passaris to walk away and Sonko said “Haya kwaheri, kwaheri ya kuonana” with the crowd cheering and others telling her “Enda enda”
Now it appears the pair are on the road to mending bridges. In a leaked WhatsApp phone call, Passaris seems to be begging Governor Sonko for money before going on a meeting.
“I went for a strategy meeting, and I was given some strategy which I told baba (Raila) to use.and baba listened to me. He used the strategy at the Jakaranda, ok? And baba has already told someone, a relative of his that this one is now going to be my kingpin in Nairobi…So tomorrow at seven o’clock; we are going to see him (Raila); I want to go with half a million, everybody is going with KSh 500,000, but me I do not have the money,” she said.
Sonko then agrees to help her with the money and talking for some time. Passaris even says he’s ready to love Sonko for free is he gives her the money, but the Nairobi Governor says he has a wife.
“I will give you KSh 500,000 today…when are you going to see baba (Raila)?” Sonko inquired. “Seven in the morning tomorrow,” she replied. “Okay, I will give you KSh 500,000 today,” he assured.
However, it’s not clear who made the call, Sonko or Passaris.
