Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Wednesday met the Senate Committee to respond to queries on why he has failed to appoint his Deputy for over 15 months since Polycarp Igathe resigned.
However, Governor Sonko momentarily halted the meeting after he asked for leave to head to the washroom.
Sonko says he will seek leave frequently as he was electrocuted at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) washrooms.
The governor had just arrived from London and decided to use the bathrooms at the Airport.
Sonko, through his Facebook page, revealed that the incident happened as he was relieving himself in the airport’s urinal.
He disclosed that should the electric shock interfere with his reproductive organs, he would sue the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA).
“Nimepigwa shock kwa machine nikinyoraa (I have been electrocuted while urinating). If I fail to sire more babies I will sure KAA,” Governor Sonko posted.
He protested the sorry state of the washrooms because some stalls have live wires which are dangerously exposed.
“This is the state of our bathrooms. KAA wake up what’s the point of paying millions of shillings to managers in salaries and yet they’re sleeping on their jobs,” Sonko lamented.
He called out a worker and his supervisor who were in the washrooms and asked why the facilities were poorly maintained, adding that it was the second time he was raising the issue.
