KOT blasts Raila, praise Sonko over petty crime convict

Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have questioned the decision by Azimio leader Raila Odinga to order for the unconditional release of a man jailed for shoplifting.

Odinga asked for the release of Alvin Chivondo who was found guilty of stealing 5kgs of rice, 5 litres of cooking oil, 2kgs of sugar, and other items valued Sh3,165 from Naivas Supermarket while arguing that other politicians who are suspected of committing greater economic crimes were walking around scot free.

Chivondo was given an alternative of a Sh100,000 fine in exchange for his freedom.

Incidentally, former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko, who is battling a number of graft cases, announced he’d settled the fine in a move that warmed Kenyans hearts.

Sonko also promised to give the man a job and one-month stock.

Here’s what Kenyans have had to say.
