Sonko goes rogue on city residents with abusive Facebook posts
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko engaged city residents in a mud-slinging duel on Thursday after leaking screenshots of private messages between himself and his deputy Polycarp Igathe.
Governor Sonko leaked the messages to prove detractors that he enjoys a good working relationship with Mr Igathe after media reports claimed that they had fallen out.
Most city residents felt that leaking the messages was a breach of trust on the governor’s part and reprimanded him on social media.
Sonko however stood his ground on sharing the messages and threw a rant at two journalists and a media house for publishing the claims of a fallout.
The governor eventually lost his cool and went rogue on Facebook, throwing tackles to those who gave negative comments.
One Peter Lukanyi asked; “The conversation is more of one way. Who is Polycarp communicating with? Just like NASA fellows, Pia utavumilia miaka 5 kukaa na mtu anakushinda masomo kwa umbali.”
The governor responded by saying; “Si hata wewe bibi yako na girlfriend yako ambae nilikunyanganya wamesoma kukushinda.”
Wilson Maina commented; “I belief this information shouldn’t be displayed here in Facebook one the mobile number for Igathe is still visible which I belief should be private plus other mobile numbers which shouldn’t be exposed still whether true or untrue we in fb won’t help u have your advisers and u can take appropriate measures.”
Governor Sonko responded, “Noted Bro but If my Deputy haja complain si wewe upige screenshots za conversation yako na dame uweke tweeter bibi yako aone may be pia hata complain.”
Lydia Igo said; “Haki Sonko stop being savage on social media this is a part of you we asked you to hide so that we could vote for you. Ati umewaita?”
Governor Sonko; “My Deputy is very hard working during the day and sleeps at night. Wewe you sleep at what time? Hahaha.”
