Video clips of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko buying a Versace neck piece for Ksh4.3 million have surfaced on-line.
The video shows of the governor in a United Arab Emirates jewelery store show Sonko picking a neck-piece made up of a Versace pendant and gold chain.

While in the store, Sonko is heard telling the seller: “I want big chains ingrained with diamond. Big chains are good.”
After expressing interest in the Versace neck-piece, the attendant tells the governor: “Have a seat as we calculate the price.”
Sonko, shortly thereafter, is heard telling one of his aides: “Kuja usikie beire hapa Makere… [Come and hear what the total price would be, Makere”
“The [Versace] pendant is 98, 200 Dirham (Ksh2.7 million) and the chain is 56, 000 Dirham (Ksh1.5 million). The total [for the neckpiece] would be 154, 200 (Ksh4.3 million),” said the store attendant.
“I am a fan of gold and Versace,” Sonko then says before asking his assistants to convert the price — 98, 200 UAE Dirham — to Kenyan shillings.
“You haven’t bought from us before. The neckpiece you have just purchased from our store is very unique, you won’t find a similar piece of art in any other store,” the seller told the governor.
The videos end by showing Sonko counting the supposed payment over the counter.
