Kenyans on Twitter are calling for the arrest of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko after being caught on camera calling Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili unprintable words.
In an undated video clip which has been widely shared online, Sonko directs his tirades to the embattled first time MP to wild cheers via a crowd.
Ongili better known as Babu Owino was arrested on Monday as well as charged arrested as well as charged in court for subversion, incitement to violence as well as offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace.
On Wednesday, he was released on a Sh500, 000 bail as well as two sureties who must be persons of equal standings, yet immediately rearrested by police officers.

The MP was charged on Thursday morning at Kibera Law Court for causing grievous harm to a voter on election day.
He will be said to have harmed Joshua Otieno at Soweto social hall in Kayole on August 8.
A second charge stated which the young MP used force to prevent the voter via voting on election date.
Kenyans on Twitter have however taken issue with Sonko’s latest outbursts as well as failure by the authorities to arrest him.
Here are some of their reactions:

Two sets of laws: One for NASA & a softer one for Jubilee. Sonko commits same crime as Babu Owino yet will be he arrested yet? #ArrestSonko
