Sonko blasts DCI over ‘mchele’ incidence at his club
Mike Sonko has hit out at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) after the agency released a report claiming a man was drugged and lost Sh600,000 at an entertainment joint.
The night club, dubbed VIP volume club is associated with the flamboyant politician.
Sonko who until 18 months ago served as Nairobi governor described the report published on the DCI social media pages as ‘malicious propaganda and a cooked up narrative’ aimed at tarnishing the good international image of the club.
Sonko however suggested the incident may have happened after the victim left the club.
“We’ve been able to obtain the M-PESA statements of the victim and it confirms the amount of money transferred from his M-PESA account by the lady after he willingly gave her the M-Pesa pin was Sh17,000 and not the figure quoted Sh596,000 in the social media. After reviewing the CCTV footage, the victim has been able to identify the lady who afterwards robbed her,” claimed Sonko.
The politician’s side of the story came hours after the DCI said the man, who was on a business trip at the Coast met a woman who laced his drink with a stupefying substance and swept his bank accounts clean.
