Passaris demand DCI block Sonko’s social media accounts

Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris has asked the Director of Criminal Investigations to block all the social media platforms of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

Speaking during the illumination of the Kenyatta International Conference Center to mark the beginning of the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, Passaris said Sonko’s recent actions warranted the country to ban him from using any social media platforms.

Sonko recently leaked videos implicating various individuals including Justice Said Chitembwe in alleged corrupt dealings, with one woman being exposed in a compromising situation.

Passaris said Sonko infringed on the rights of the woman and his expose of her constitutes online violence against her.

“That kind of violence and violation of a woman is wrong by every standard and I call on the DCI to take action against him because as a country, you can block someone who terrorises and abuses women on social media platforms,” she said.

She said Kenya should take a leaf out of a page of European countries and how they deal with such.

“Europe refuses to even mention the names of such people and they do not give them any kind of audience. So I am challenging the DCI and the DPP to close those social media platforms,” she said.

Sonko’s actions, she added, show a lack of respect for all genders, as well as children and society at large.
