Mombasa gubernatorial aspirant Mike Mbuvi Sonko has implored on government to keenly address the safety needs of prominent leaders especially during this electioneering period to avert dangerous speculations incase of any unforeseen happenings.
Basing on Kalonzo's recent experience where his chopper was forced to hold an emergency landing in Suswa, Narok County after developing mechanical complications, Sonko expressed his relief that his party boss and associates are out of danger.
Sonko maintained that the safety of national leaders and the sensitivity of Kenyan elections should never be overlooked.
Sonko drew parallels with a 2012 chopper accident that killed high-ranking government officials led by Minister bof Security George Saitoti and his assistant, Orwa Ojode, which up to date are shrouded in mystery, with several conspiracies founded on the same.
"During this electioneering period,the state should enhance the safety of all the stakeholders especially that of national leaders to avert any speculations that would suggest foul play in our politics given the sensitivity of the Kenyan election.We still remember vile Hon. Goerge Saitoti, Orwa Ojode and others met their deaths." Sonko said.
During Kalonzo's Suswa encounter, another chopper was deployed to ferry him to Homabay as the other one remained grounded awaiting engineers from Nairobi to attend to it.
According to Wiper party communication head, Gatabaki, the well-trained pilots who were incharge of the flight noted the technical malfunctions in time before the helicopter got in the air and prevented the Wiper party leader from boarding it.
