Flashback 2018: The Day Mike Sonko Became A Mzungu

Governor of Nairobi Sonko

We believe that in order to measure up as Governor of Nairobi, he had to change his mannerisms and dress in suits. Daily Updates takes you back to a day that Gideon Mike Mbuvi Sonko, perhaps, took his learned 'poshness', too far. The day the word 'city' lost the 't' in it.

On November 26, the second day of the Blue Economy Conference in Nairobi, Governor Mike Sonko took to the podium to address the audience. As boss of Nairobi, it was per protocol for him, as host, to address the delegates that attended from all over the world.

Dressed in a navy blue suit, blue shirt and tie, the man whose political career is nothing short of miraculous stood to read his speech. His boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, watched from his seat.

'Your Excellency, The President of the Republic of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyarrrra....'

Wait. We know our Governor. Last we checked he calls his boss, Kenyatta, with a 'T'.
What's going on? ๐Ÿ‘€ 

He goes on to acknowledge all dignitaries present and we keep watching, believing the first was just a mispronunciation.

'Nairobi, is proud to be the first cirry in the world to host this important and exciting conference'

This is where we realize that this is no joke. Our Governor has a new accent.

'The name Nairobi means 'a place of cool warrrers in our local Maasai language.'

Oh Goodness! Did he just bling the word 'waters'? Oh yes, he did. This is no longer a joke.

'Nairobi, is also the home to two United Nations headquaras, UNEP and UN Habitat..'

Okay, guys. This is real now. I repeat. This is NOT a drill.

๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ It did not stop and we had our fair share of 'cirry' and other blinged up words in the speech.

For flashback's sake, here is the video;
