Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko bailed A century old grandmother recently featured in the news for having being sent to prison over a land row. Margaret Ngima was sentenced at Embu High Court for contempt of court together with her sons Peter Njue 72, and Angelo Gichovi 52, on March 10. The granny could not come up with 100,000 shillings bond and for that she was sentenced to three months . When he heard her story, he sent his rescue team all the way to Embu where she was in remand at the Embu prison, paid the money and she was finally released.
He later wrote this on his Facebook page
Finally Our Grandma Ngima Gakoromo Margaret Ngina is free courtesy of Sonko Rescue team and can afford to smile once again after being behind bars because of lack of Kshs. 100,000 bond due to a Land Case.This late evening I was shocked and found myself emotional when I read a story about our beloved 100 year old granny from Embu who was jailed for failing to raise a fine amounting to Kshs. 100,000 while we have well-connected individuals implicated in Multi-Million Shilling Public Rip-offs continuing to roam in the streets scot-free.
Sonko Rescue Team was dispatched to help bail out the granny…We could not believe and accept that she spends a 2nd Night in a Cell.Sonko Rescue Team will later perform a Full Medical Check-up to make sure that she is all round okay after the unexpected humiliation she underwent.
Let us all Learn to Respect, Love and Protect the ELDERLY especially women…They took care of us when we were young and It is now our turn to take real care of them.We also hereby call for further and thorough investigations on the entire land saga.God Bless and Protect All the Elderly in Our Community, God Bless and Protect us All!!Nawapenda Wote na muwe na Usiku Mwema.
Sonko keeps winning by doing acts of mercy towards the poor in society which are gaining him popularity each day among Kenyans. It waits to be seen how Nairobians will reward him come 2017.
