Trouble! Kalembe Ndile sues Sonko for verbally abusing him on phone

Published

on

Nairobi governor Mike Sonko is staring a fresh legal battle in the wake of an apparent fallout with former Kibwezi Member of Parliament Kalembe Ndile.

Ndile, a one-time Cabinet Minister during Kibaki’s regime, on Tuesday at a press conference said he had instituted legal proceedings against the flamboyant governor for verbally abusing him during a telephone conversation which went viral on social media.

“He abused me. He knows it is an offence to do that and I have recorded a statement with the police who have referred me to the DCI,” said Ndile.

Ndile also accused Sonko of failing to pay him Sh9 million in accrued arrears for different services.

“He borrowed money from me. He ate at my hotel and didn’t pay. I have been working for him and he has to pay me,” Ndile said.

In the viral audio Sonko is heard shouting unprintable words at a calm Ndile.

The conversation commences with Ndile seemingly following up on payment for services rendered for Nairobi County where Sonko is the boss.

“Governor you are my friend. When you have a (political) problem, you come to Kambas and ask for support. Now you are here abusing me,” Ndile is heard reminding Sonko of how he has stood by him during the tough times.

To this an angry Sonko retorts: “I am not your friend and you will never see me in your house. You have been supplying air in Dandora and now you want to be paid. I will not pay you, Go and report me to the police.”

“That is fine, don’t pay me then. Just remember that we will always need each other in this world,” Ndile responds.

At this point, Sonko, who sounds very angry, resorts to threatening Ndile.

“Which problems do you think I have? We will blacklist you in Nairobi (County). You can go and work in Machakos. I don’t need your respect. You can record me and take me wherever you want to. In fact, I will reverse the (earlier) payments (made to you). You are so ungrateful.”

Sonko has in the past been recorded having a not so cordial telephone conversation with fellow politicians Reuben Ndolo, Ferdinand Waititu and Esther Passaris.

He is a very dangerous man! Sonko’s daughter accuses senator of attempting to kill her

Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told Kenyans.co.ke that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

“Wedding date confirmed,” she captioned a picture of herself and the senator in June 2020.

Her previous relationship with businessman cum politician Ben Gatu also ended after she accused him of being violent.

The US government has revealed that there are significant cases of Covid-19 in Tanzania.

This is just a week after it advised its citizens against travelling to the East African country.

“The US Embassy is aware of a significant increase in the number of Covid-19 cases since January 2021,” the Embassy said.

In a Health alert, the US said the practice of Covid-19 mitigation and prevention measures remains limited.

The Tanzanian government has not released aggregate numbers on Covid-19 cases or deaths since April 2020.

“Healthcare facilities in Tanzania can become quickly overwhelmed in a healthcare crisis. Limited hospital capacity throughout Tanzania could result in life-threatening delays for emergency medical care,” US said.

The Department of State’s travel advisory level for Tanzania is Level 3.

The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention says that travellers should avoid all travel to Tanzania.

The Embassy continues to recommend that all individuals take caution in day-to-day activities.

President John Magufuli assured the 58 million inhabitants that they need not worry about observing Covid-19 preventative measures.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday made a surprising stop to lecture Nairobi residents after finishing his engagement at the National Cargo Deconsolidation Centre (NCDC-Nairobi).

The Head of State said he was angry at Nairobians for being against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill stating that the report has given Nairobi more constituencies.

“If we have a BBI that says the people of Nairobi will have more constituencies and if it’s bursaries a child in Mathare who today receives Ksh500, how will that child study up to university level,” President Kenyatta said.

“But there is another child who gets Ksh100,000 in Busury per year is that right?… BBI is not for helping Raila or Uhuru it is for you,” he continued.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
