Journalist Jacque Maribe has stirred a debate online after she visited Governor Sonko in police cells.
Maribe who has never visited her long time boyfriend Jowie, in remand has been a subject of ridicule. Kenyans on social media have criticized the journalist calling her names after the abrupt visit.
….”Boy child Jowie is in deep shit if he still calls this thing a girlfriend. This is absurd!” read a tweet from Abigael Mutheu.
Sonko was dramatically arrested on Friday afternoon at Ndii area in Voi Sub-county along Nairobi-Mombasa Highway while on the run to Mombasa, hours after arrest warrant was issued against him by the office of Director of Public Prosecution over misappropriation of 357 million shillings.
Governor Sonko was arrested in his four-vehicle convoy at a roadblock in Voi while driving to Mombasa.
