Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Monday, July 6, came to the rescue of a woman stranded by the roadside at night with two kids after a domestic quarrel.
The woman who identified herself as Susan claimed that her husband worked at Utalii House in the Ministry of Tourism with Sonko even attempting to call him.
She explained that she was on her way to Mlolongo to visit a pastor who she hoped would offer advice after her husband planned to kick her out.
Susan narrated that she had initially been able to travel to Machakos despite the cessation of movement order to visit the pastor but was told the man of the cloth was in Mlolongo, Athi River.
The Governor found the woman seated by the roadside with her two children and was taking a breather from the walk towards Mlolongo.
The woman claimed that she resided in Rongai and had used up all her money on fare leaving her with no option but to walk to Mlolongo.
Sonko asked the woman details about her husband and the circumstance that led to her fleeing her home to go seek advice from the pastor.
“My husband is called Vincent, we stay in Rongai and he works with the Government, we had domestic issues.
“He works at Utalii House in the Ministry of Tourism, he wanted to chase us away and I saw it best to go seek advice from the pastor,” explained the woman.
Susan had carried a non-woven bag that contained the baby’s clothes who she revealed was three years old and some documents.
The woman also claimed that she had another child who she left at home.
Sonko catered for their accommodation and food and promised to provide more substantial help in the morning.
