Thousands of litres of alcohol were drowned and a couple of cows and goats slaughtered on Tuesday night as chosen Jubilee supporters converged to celebrate the swearing in of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

The bash, estimated to have cost Sh3.5 million, was held at Gallileo Lounge in Westlands, Nairobi.

The event was bankrolled by President Kenyatta and the DP.

The purse holders for the night were Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Uhuru’s private secretary Jomo Gecaga.


Some sources say fine whiskey and beer flowed freely until 7am on Wednesday.

“Nyama hata haikuisha,” added the source.

However, some attendees complained that they did not feel the weight of the Sh3.5 million.

“Unless you were very well known or close to where Sonko and Jomo were, you only got two beers and the rest you had to buy. We just left,” added the source.
