She’s adorable, just like my mum – Sakaja showers little daughter with love

It may have been Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja’s big day but it is his little daughter who stole the show during his swearing-in ceremony at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC) on Thursday.

As Sakaja was making his first speech after being handed over power by the outgoing governor Ann Kananu, he was ‘forced’ to pause his speech to admire his daughter as she played with multi-coloured confetti at the event venue.

“Oh, she is so adorable as she plays with the outgoing governor Kananu and the president elect, William Ruto. She seems to enjoy her play,” Sakaja said with a tinge of pride in his voice.

“Watching her play just reminds me of my mother. Look at the way she is dancing and playing freely with the dignitaries,” the incoming governor went on as the little continued playing without a care in the world.
