Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko is back to the limelight after he was released on Wednesday over corruption charges.
Sonko spent last weekend in prison before falling sick and seeking medical attention in Kenyatta National Hospital.
The hearing on Wednesday conducted by magistrate Douglas Ogoti saw him released on Ksh 15 million bail and surety bond of Ksh 30 million.
With anticipations on Jamhuri Day and much-awaited speakers including president Uhuru’s speech, Sonko tweeted for the first time after his release wishing Kenyans well in this day.
” I am happy to join the rest of Kenyans in marking the 56th Jamhuri day celebrations. Jamhuri day reminds us of the power of independence and why it is important for everyone to fight for our rightful position in society and all spheres of life,” he wrote.
Sonko was given tough conditions after his release which included posting on social media in relation to the case.
