Sonko and Esther Passaris Meet for The 1st Time Since Nasty Spat [PHOTOS]
There are signs of a truce between Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, and his Woman Representative, Esther Passaris, after they were spotted in public on Saturday morning.
The two had accompanied President Uhuru Kenyatta to commission the New Kenya Co-operative Creameries (KCC) Dandora factory in Nairobi's Mowlem Estate.
In one of the photos, the two Nairobi leaders are seen engaging in an intimate conversation suggesting that they were finally on good terms.
The leaders first had a public spat on June 1, 2019, during the Madaraka Day celebrations when Passaris stormed out of an event while Sonko was speaking.
During his address, Sonko stated that Passaris was not above the law in regard to a plan by the latter to construct toilets in the city adding that he could not always pick the woman rep's calls.
Sonko took their fallout further and made two fresh accusations about Passaris on Citizen TV including a time when she reportedly demanded double pay for her per diem and that in one occasion, she allegedly invited him to her hotel room at Intercontinental hotel.
The governor's accusations would become too toxic that showrunners at Citizen TV had to cut short the interview.
So dire were the attacks that the government, through the Ministry of Public Service, Youth, and Gender Affairs, issued a statement condemning the onslaught on women in leadership positions in the country.
Roughly 10 days later, a photoshopped image of the two leaders surfaced online further reviving the rift that was the talk of the whole country.
As it looks now, the fights have seemingly died down and the two are beginning to put it all behind them.
