VIDEO: Former Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, questions The US government for banning him and his family from travelling to the United States of America over corruption issues

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that the US government has placed a travel ban on former Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko and his family over corruption issues. (Read More Here).

According to the Tuesday announcement by Counselor for Public Affairs Eric Watnik at the US Embassy in Nairobi. 

“His (Sonko’s) corruption has been widely reported in local and international press. With this designation the department reaffirms the need for accountability, transparency and respect for rule of law in Kenya’s democratic institutions, government processes and the actions of the public officials. 

"The United States will continue to use all tools available to combat corruption and promote respect for human rights globally.” Eric Watnikissued the communication on behalf of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Reacting to the ban, Mike Sonko questioned the US government. 

"I am shocked and surprised. My wife and daughters have never applied or won any tenders while I was Nairobi governor. We have other other governors facing criminal charges with their children. Mine have not been charged," Sonko said.

"My cases are still in court and the rule of law in Kenya on the presumption of innocence until proven guilty stands. I have not been convicted of any crimes," he added while speaking at his Shanzu, Mombasa residence.

"I am being persecuted because I differed with the State over some issues. But I will exhaust all avenues of appeal and ensure I am cleared,' he added.
