A last minute fumble by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko ruined his maiden inspection of a guard of honour mounted by Nairobi city askaris on Monday.

The governor looked sharp in a blue suit and stood with a commanding gait as the parade commander requested for permission for the askaris to be inspected.

Throughout the march, Governor Sonko showed that he had properly practised for his new role, moving in step with the parade commander as they navigated the rows and corners of the parade.

But as he nears the end, the governor seems to have forgotten the drill and had to guided by aides who instructed him to face the commander, acknowledge salutations and dismiss the parade.

In all though, it wasn’t a bad show for his first official duty.
