A congratulatory message from Nairobi Woman Representative-elect Esther Passaris to Governor Mike Sonko has provoked varied reactions from the online community.

Ms Passaris was on Monday at Uhuru Park to witness the swearing in of Mr Sonko as the new Nairobi governor.

She cut a forlorn figure sitting among the dignitaries who attended the ceremony, but was gracious enough to post a congratulatory tweet to Sonko.

The tweet was however greeted with a generous pinch of salt.

Ms Passaris and Mr Sonko have never hidden their hard feelings for each other and regularly exchange barbs on social media.

Kenyans on Twitter were quick to notice Passaris’s  change of heart.
