High Court Judge Said Chitembwe has come out to speak about the viral video clips posted by former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko which linked him to bribery in a disputed land court case.

Chitembwe claimed the videos were edited to frame him in a Wednesday interview with KTN News, adding that Sonko was seeking vengeance because Chitembwe was one of three judges who dismissed his petition against Anne Kananu’s inauguration as Nairobi governor.

“It is not a coincidence that the videos were released on the day of Ann Kananu’s swearing-in. He was angry the petition did not go through. He is on record asking why I dismissed the case yet I am his uncle. The videos were released out of anger,” said Chitembwe.

Chitembwe also claimed that he and Sonko have been friends for a long time, but that things changed when he filed a petition in December last year to prevent his then-deputy Ann Kananu from being sworn in as governor.

He stated that he had not been approached to act as an intermediary or ‘fixer’ in the case and that he had not been paid.

“There was no money to be paid, the videos were edited to frame me,” said Chitembwe.

“Let the videos go round because they are edited to fit a particular narrative. Some parts have been left. I knew about the existence of the videos in July and it was just a matter of when they would be out,” he added.

Sonko shared a series of video recordings on Tuesday of a meeting between a man claiming to be Chitembwe’s brother soliciting and receiving a bribe on the judge’s behalf.

Chitembwe, on the other hand, denied any ties to the alleged brother, claiming that they only live in the same rural area.

“That man is not my brother, not my uncle and our parents are not related. However, I have known him for over 10 years because we both come from Kwale,” he told KTN News.
