Sonko’s daughter Sandra speaks about being raised in a wealthy family

Former Nairobi Governor’s daughter Sandra Mbuvi has said money cannot give people full satisfaction.

Responding to the question of being raised in a wealthy family, Sandra debunked the misconception that a life of luxury guarantees a trouble-free existence.

“Life is not easy. People are talking, but they don’t know,” she said.

Despite her affluent background, Sandra also debunked the myth that money is a cure for life’s challenges.

“I could be president or a king’s daughter, but I still go through a lot. Money is not the answer to everything,” she said.

Sandra’s used a matatu for the first time in her life in February this year an experience she described as crazy and very uncomfortable.

“I am fine. This is my first time in a matatu. It feels crazy and so uncomfortable,” she said.

Sandra also made headlines when she claimed on her Instagram account that she does not eat ugali that has not been cooked with Blueband and butter to soften it.

“I don’t eat ugali. The only way I do is when its cooked with butter or blueband,” she said.

Sandra also revealed that she has a Muslim background and her full name is Sandra Mwanaidi Mbuvi.

“Explaining will take forever but I’m half Muslim. I go to town with a whole buibui and still get recognized.”

In yet another Q and A on her Instagram a curious fan asked Sandra to share with them what her dogs eat.

Sandra obliged and shared screenshot of her dogs’ weekly menu from what they have from breakfast to dinner, which included scrambled eggs and fruits.

Asked if she would consider joining politics, Sandra said: “Not interested in such, maybe Saumu Mbuvi.”

Sandra also told Prince Newton on his YouTube channel that people assume she lives off of her dad’s money

“My dad is the one who taught me to hustle, I make my own money. I don’t have to be like oh dad send me money oh I need pocket money,” she said.

Sandra earns her living through modeling. Her first contract ever was working with the Range Rover brand, which paid her handsomely.
