The oldest convict in Kenya is finally free thanks to Mike Sonko. Kenyans on social media blasted the harsh sentence meted on a 100 year granny who was convicted for contempt of court. The granny was jailed at the Embu Women Prison after she failed to raise Sh100,000 she was slapped with by the court.
Margaret Ngima was lonely at the correctional facility and it is unimaginable that she would spend three more months at the Prison. This irked many Kenyans who wondered why prominent personalities implicated in multimillion scams were still walking free.
Many Kenyans offered to assist the granny but it was Mike Sonko who came to her rescue. The Nairobi Senator cleared the amount today after the outcry from Kenyan. Embu Governor had also showed interest in bailing the 100 year old granny. She was sentenced together with her two sons aged 72 and 52 years by the Embu Law Court.
This is the message Sonko posted on social media after bailing out the granny Margaret Ngima:
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!!
