Former Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, has caused a stir on social media after sharing a video where he flaunted a staggering Ksh 30 Million in cash.
Sonko’s intention was to prove his financial stability and shut down rumors that he had gone broke. In the video, he proudly displayed briefcases filled with a combination of dollars and Kenyan shillings, claiming that the money was reserved for fueling his car.
However, recent reports suggest that Sonko’s video was a direct response to his brother-in-law, who allegedly called him demanding repayment for a business deal. It is said that Sonko has failed to fulfill his financial obligations to his brother-in-law, despite maintaining an extravagant lifestyle online.
In a voicemail message leaked to the public, Sonko’s brother-in-law accused him of pretending to be wealthy. He claimed that Sonko sold their late father’s Mercedes Benz without the family’s consent and recklessly spent the proceeds in a nightclub with his friends. The brother-in-law further labeled Sonko as a con artist, asserting that he even deceives his own family members.
The leaked voicemail message seems to have pushed Sonko to flaunt the substantial sum of cash amounting to Ksh 30 Million. The video was likely an attempt to assert his financial prowess and silence those who doubted his wealth.
The viral video and the subsequent revelations about Sonko’s financial affairs have sparked intense debate and criticism from the public. Many question the source of his wealth and accuse him of engaging in dubious activities to maintain his extravagant lifestyle.
