In a letter to Bolt Kenya, Sonko, through lawyer Danstan Omari wants the company to create awareness of the gross misconduct by their driver namely Moctor Indwas failure to which will amount to the company entertaining the said sexual offenses committed.

“We write to you to create awareness of the gross misconduct by one of your drivers and to prompt you to take swift action against the said driver,” Omari states.

After the video of the unfortunate incident went viral, Bolt Kenya issued a statement claiming yo have suspended the said driver and issued an apology to the victims.

The video of the incident has caused public outcry for Bolt Kenya to take stun actions against the driver rather than just to suspend him.

According to the letter, as the former Governor of Nairobi county, Sonko says he has a duty to protect the residents of Nairobi especially the youth.

He also claims to have been entrusted to represent the victims 27 and 21 year old sisters because Bolt is a Multi-national company, a fact which may intimidate the victims.

In the 23rd October incident, the two sisters had requested for a bolt ride from Kilimani to Gachie. However, upon being picked by the driver, he started to expose his manhood to the said ladies making them to order him to drop them off midway.
