Passaris Defends Nkatha, Orders DCI to barre Sonko from Social Media

Speaking on Tuesday 23rd November during the illumination of the Kenyatta International Conference Center to mark the beginning of the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, the outspoken leader asked the Director of Criminal Investigations {DCI} to barre all Sonko`s social media accounts.

Sonko's latest acts, according to Passaris, justified the country's decision to prohibit him from using any social media platforms.

She added that Sonko violated the woman's rights, by exposing the video further amounting to internet violence against her.

“That kind of violence and violation of a woman is wrong by every standard and the I call on the DCI to take action against him because as a country, you can block someone who has terrorises and abuse women on social media platforms,” she said.
