Governor Mike Sonko has on Wednesday blasted those claiming Pangani evictees did not receive payment to take their “nonsense to hell.”

Governor Sonko’s remarks come after a Twitter user by the name Juma G said the eviction of Pangani residents was unjustified.

Juma proceeds to say some of those evicted were never paid and on the other side officials say they were paid but no money was received.

“Dear @MikeSonko, the brutal eviction of residents of Pangani at midnight was unjustifiable. Some of those evicted were never paid. Officials say they were paid but no money reached them. People are now stranded with nowhere to go. Must a demolition be carried out at midnight?” Said Juma G

Posting a picture of one of the residents smiling as she held a cheque, the Nairobi Governor said those who were not paid are the ones who refused to take the money.
