  • Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko's daughter Sandra Mbuvi on Saturday, February 13, made a visit to the former county head in hospital.

    Sandra, who is Sonko's youngest daughter, shared intimate photos with her father in the private wing of the Nairobi Hospital.

    She later captioned the pictures with an encouraging message to Sonko who is still waiting for a court ruling over his detainment on terrorism-related charges.

    The young lady stated that the current tribulations only made them stronger.

    "They throw us in the wolves, we come back leading the pack. Love you papa," she stated.

    Sonko appeared to be recovering well as he lay in the executive room.

    Sonko was taken to hospital on February 9 and later taken to court accompanied by a nurse where he was released on a bail of Ksh300,000.

    The ex-governor's ward is in the private wing of the hospital, reserved for VIPs, but access to the flamboyant politician is highly restricted.

    He is receiving treatment under the watchful eye of anti-terror police who are guarding his wardroom on a 24-hour basis.

    A spokesperson attached to Sonko's team disclosed that he was under good care in the health facility.

    While in detention, Sonko lamented that his life was in danger and alleged that an unknown assailant had attempted to poison him through an injection while he was in jail. 

    He had spent some nights in a cell after the court earlier denied him bail after the prosecution said that he was a flight risk and would tamper with evidence and witnesses.

    The prosecution claimed that Sonko once escaped Shimo la Tewa Prison in 1998.
