Makadara seat aspirant Mike Mbuvi aka Sonko during an interview in Nairobi.charles kimani.13-8-10 Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has accused the National Intelligence Service of culpability in Saturday's Westgate attack.
Sonko sensationally claimed in the Senate yesterday that he had two months ago warned the NIS of the imminent attacks but he was ignored. He made the remarks when the House adjourned to debate the attack in which 69 people died. Sonko told the Senate that he had received information concerning the attacks from three Asian women, who reside in Westlands and Parklands areas.
He said he had then furnished NIS with information detailing the suspected terrorists, who had planned to bomb two private entities and two key national installations. Sonko said the women had told her that terror attacks were imminent at Westgate and Village Market shopping malls and the two Houses of Parliament. The terror suspects had rented a house in the women's homes but soon started harassing them.
The senator did not elaborate the kind of harassment the women were subjected to. Sonko promised to submit the evidence to the House to prove his claims.
