Broke Nairobians drool at Sonko’s wad of cash

A picture of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko with a wad of cash tucked inside the pocket of his coat has excited Njaanuary-hit Nairobians.

Sonko appeared in an interview with Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange on Wednesday night where he addressed the challenges of managing the capital city.

He managed to woo the audience with his newly refined and mature  eloquence in responding to questions directed at him.

But what caught the eyes of many was when he lifted his arms to put a point across, inadvertently making his coat to expose a wad of crisp Sh1, 000 notes in his inner pocket.

This excited Kenyans on Twitter who are struggling to survive the long month of January,

Here is what KOT had to say.

Karanganguhu said; “Who can spot the bunch of cash?”

Irungu Antoine wrote; “Mapesa tu kwa mfuko ya koti.”

Castle_gem commented; “The 1k brick in the inner left hand pocket though!”

David Ndiang’ui tweeted; “H. E Sonko Lets have lunch Tomorrow please.”

Violah Saisi said; “Reaction ya matajiri wa Nairobi wakisikia Governor akisema watu vile ni wezi.”
