Many Kenyans have taken to social media to question how the Senators would remain fair in handling Sonko during oversight in the Senate when he was their client on the other spectrum

“Senators, whose primary responsibility is oversight and legislation on counties and devolution, are lead counsels in Sonko’s corruption trial. Morality in Kenya has been flushed down the toilet,” wrote Kasembeli on his Twitter account.

“One of the senator’s mandate is to make sure governors are accountable. But look senators are actually the ones defending Sonko in court,” wrote Blinder.

Generally, a large section of Kenyans is not happy with the move by the two Senators to defend Sonko whom they are supposed to hold accountable.

Hours after the arrest of Governor Sonko on Friday, December 6, Senator Murkomen reiterated that Sonko was being pursude to due to his political stand.

He also urged the DPP to take action against the police officer who attempted to assault the handcuffed Sonko in Voi.
