Mike Sonko, KOT react to US travel ban


The ban imposed on former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and his immediate family from visiting the United States of America has had Kenyans talking.

The Sonkos were slapped with the ban on Tuesday, and the US authorities have attributed the decision to alleged corruption activities attributed to the embattled politician.

“My wife and children have never done business with the government so I do not know why they are victimized.
