Nairobians have their say on Sonko’s surrender to the state

It could either be a well-calculated move to secure his political future or a noose around the neck that will ultimately strangle Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

Whichever the case, Sonko’s hand over of county functions to the National Government has left Nairobians scratching their heads.

Besieged governor Mike Sonko signed off the management of the county to Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa at an impromptu event at State House, Nairobi on Tuesday evening.

The event was witnessed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka and Attorney General Paul Kihara.

The turn of events surprised many Nairobians, especially since Governor Sonko has lately been fighting to clear his name on all corruption charges he is facing in court so as to be able to return to office.

Social media was abuzz as Kenyans on Twitter carried a robust conversation on the new developments.
