Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has on Thursday morning been summoned by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC).

The summoning of the Nairobi Governor follows graft allegations he made against Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris.

Sonko was quoted saying that the unpaid per diem requested by the women rep during her trips in New York and Vienna had already been paid for.

Confirming the summon, the Nairobi Governor said that he will honour it as he joins the president in fighting corruption.

“I acknowledge receipt of summons by the EACC relating to alleged utterances I made, directed to Hon. @esthermpassaris, the Nairobi City County Woman Representative, and her unpaid per diem for a trip she made to New York in March 2019 despite the county having paid for her air ticket to New York and before that Vienna.
