Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko was bashed online for sharing lavish, assembled photos of his dining room.
The images were shared alongside a caption of emergency hotline numbers, city residents were to dial in case of emergency during this rainy season, living many to question how the two were connected.
City dwellers, however, expressed displeasure with the governor’s actions, hitting him in the comments section.
“Sonko I swear sometimes you are so petty and out of focus at what really means to be a Governor. Nairobi is having Emergency flooding yet you are posting pictures of your furniture?” One Dee Karis wrote.
While another dweller, expressed dissatisfaction with his dwellings “Roads in Zimmerman are impassable bwana Governor,” he cried.
Tahiil Adan Abdi said: “A city with no drainage, no job opportunity and you are just everytime bragging in social media with your PR and emergency numbers since you know there is emergency to all the areas you did not tackled. Mostly, drainage is part of development, city should be a financial hub of the country and Nairobi needs to look like a city and where it deserves. Change your ways to change Nairobi.”
“What’s connection between the emergency lines and pictures of your gold decked meeting room. The flooded cbd is virtually “unwalkable” whenever it rains,” Joe Karoki questioined.
