Mike Sonko grabbed the headlines last week. Yes, that is the type of power (controversy) that the Nairobi governor has when he opens his mouth to speak.
What has he done now? He and Millie Odhiambo have been involved in a tiff this past week after Sonko’s revelation that Ken Okoth had a love-child.
The two have attacked each other viciously on social media and Millie has now responded again on her Facebook page. She dressed down the governor in her message that was written in a scholarly fashion and demeaning fashion.
Some of her memorable quotes in her story were;
My good friend and young brother Sonko, let me tell you something, I am a lawyer- an intellectual if you may, who is also happily a pig while in politics. I am NEVER intimidated by bullies like you who thrive on populism devoid of intellect that often sl*t-shames women. My response to you will be both intellectual and pigerly. You can hire a lawyer to translate for you the intellectual bit. The pigerly bit of course needs no translation coz it’s your expertise.
She then went on to tell the governor that she had been doing a lot in parliament to help children, especially in areas of succession, writing,
Currently we are pushing for an overhaul of the Children Act to ensure protection of all children including children whose parents are not married to each other in conformity with Article 53 of the Constitution.
Millie finished off by telling the governor that she had done more for kids than many even knew. She also threw in a controversial bit telling Sonko,
You said history never forgets so let me remind you that I have said before publicly that I love se3 and I have se3.What I also know- men who are overly obsessed with demeaning women se3ually, have either a coma or a fullstop where it matters. Real men have BOLDED EXCLAMATION MARKS in support of women.
What I do know is that this affair will not end anytime soon as the two politicians are very petty!
