Former Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko has responded following a newspaper coverage by the Standard newspaper focusing on his current life.
Today’s paper had the former County chief on the front page with the captions “Inside the tragic World of Sonko.”
The paper went ahead to capture his Yester-life to the rise of being the king not leaving out his then theatrics that made him woo souls to power.
Taking to social media on his official Twitter handle in response to the coverage, Sonko stated that the newspaper and the media seemed to be really missing him.
The former County head went ahead to dismiss the publication, calling on them to let him live his private life as a normal citizen.
“Kumbe the newspapers and the media cartels are really missing me? Hebu muniache nirelax kama raia mwema bana jamani,” tweeted Sonko.
This comes barely a day after a video of the former governor appeared online while engaging in construction work at a site alongside other construction workers while enjoying his non-political life.
“Life after politics is stress-free,” Sonko captioned the video that he had shared on social media.
The flamboyant County head has recently taken a low profile after being charged for multiple offenses, including graft, terrorism, and robbery with violence.
A section of the netizens was quick to react to the video Congratulating him for having a first-hand feel of what the commonfolk engaged in.
“It is very important. You can imagine someone does what you are doing as his job which they don’t even get every day because of bad economics,” Jay Eel tweeted.
” Is it an offense for him to do mjengo? I don’t see any problem with that. You should accept life the way it comes,” Sabina Ramoya questioned.
