Sonko weighs in on Vera Sidika’s new look

Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has weighed in on the new-look, Vera Sidika.

In a tweet, Sonko said, “It is sad that Vera Sidika almost died. Lemme use a euphemism to caution women; please be content with how you were created by God. Stop these construction surgeries of your derrieres.”

Socialite Sidika unveiled her new body on Wednesday, sending the internet into a frenzy.

In what she termed as her ‘rebirth’ Sidika went ahead and cautioned women against doing cosmetic surgeries such as butt and boobs implants saying the consequences were dire.

“The side effects and risks of butt implants and surgeries do exist. The complications are unbearable. Some people don’t make it out alive. Some are lucky enough to survive it. Ladies. Don’t ever do this to yourselves,” she advised.

Making a comeback in the social media space, Vera while opening up said, “This has been the hardest phase in my life, due to a health risk, I had to undergo surgery. It’s still very unbelievable but I’ve come to terms with it and learnt to love myself regardless.”

Adding, “Ladies, please learn to love yourself and don’t ever let peer pressure rush you into things that will ruin you in future. I’m lucky to be alive, God loves me so much. Honestly, it’s been pretty hard, I didn’t even celebrate my birthday this year, but here we are.”
