Thank you Senator Mike Sonko for rescuing Risper Ongwena, the 87years old granny from Rongo, Migori County who was wrongly accused of stealing two plastic chairs.
Through this kind gesture, you’ve touched not only the heart of the granny and his poor family but also inspired many young people in Migori County. I also want to thank my sweet friend, Scophine Otieno for exposing the story. You’re a lovely journalist.
The true position is that the granny did not steal as alleged, her grandson was the suspect. By the time the police went to pick the boy for questioning, he was missing and so the poor granny had to pay for the sins of her grandson because the chairs were found in her house.
You may be tempted to ask where Luo leaders were and why they never bothered. Why would a suffering woman in a Migori village be rescued by a Kamba from Nairobi yet we’ve so many noisy elected and aspiring leaders from Migori County?
And I know some idiot here will tell me that Sonko’s money isn’t clean. Well, where were those Luo leaders with their clean money?
