  • Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris on Saturday responded to claims that she tried to extort Ksh300 million from Governor Mike Sonko.

    Taking to Twitter, Passaris claimed that Sonko was not telling Kenyans the truth over the matter.

    "I wish we had lie detectors in Kenya. We are dealing with a man who cannot tell the difference between a lie and the truth.

    "That's a disorder that cannot be treated as sadly 'a narcissist' believes his lie to be the truth. Insecurity and inferiority haunt them to nonsense," she tweeted.

    Passaris also called on the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate claims that she receives a per diem from the county government.

    "Let him take his evidence to EACC I invite them to investigate if indeed I was paid twice for CSW 2018.

    It's very shameful for one to knowingly lie, decieve the public with online theatrics and in the same breath refuse to engage all investigative arms of government," she added.

    During an interview on Citizen TV on Wednesday, Sonko claimed Passaris had been soliciting huge sums of money from him, including Sh 300 Million to help him in settle a petition challenging his election as the governor.

    He also alleged that she had been forcing the county government to give her an allowance.
