Nairobi woman representative Esther Passaris has broken her silence since Governor Sonko ‘exposed’ her last week.
Passaris who spoke immediately after landing back into the country from Canada where she attended ‘Women Deliver Conference 2019’ in Vancouver said she won’t respond to the allegations but instead, she will follow the law to deal with the Governor.
She assured Kenyans that this time around it will be last time a person uses falsehood to bring down a woman.
“We have laws and rules in this country, I will use any single law and rule and be guided by the constitution to ensure that this time will be the last time that somebody uses falsehood to bring down a woman or a woman leader,” she said.
“I want to see good leaders in parliament and I want to see good leaders at the country level,” she added.
Passaris also said she will be visiting the offices of the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, National Cohesion and Integration, and the National Commission on Women to defend her rights.
She said this time round she won’t keep quiet saying she let it go when she was accused by lawyer Miguna Miguna of ‘saying she would go for a 30-days sex holiday in Seychelles if Raila Odinga was inaugurated as president’.
Miguna Miguna also called her a ‘socialite bimbo whose work is to look for billionaire sponsors’.
Last week, Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko alleged that Passaris was being used and paid by some individuals in the office of the President to undermine him.
Sonko said that was the reason the women rep ‘attacked’ him during Madaraka day celebrations in Pumwani.
There was drama during the Madaraka Day celebrations after Nairobi Woman Rep Esther Passaris walked off as the Governor Mike Sonko was speaking.
Their differences played out in public with the crowd that had gathered at Pumwani Secondary School booing and jeering as she stepped off the podium.
Earlier in her speech, she had urged the governor to unite political leaders in Nairobi even as she seemingly questioned Sonko’s use of money.
Governor Sonko also alleged that Passaris wanted to have a love affair with him saying that she severally called him to a room in Intercontinental Hotel.
