Netizens tirelessly troll Mike Sonko over viral State House photo
A picture of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko during a meeting between former US President Barack Obama and President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House has made him a subject of online trolling and ridicule.
Mr Sonko was captured in a photograph standing alone behind Obama, Uhuru, Deputy President William Ruto, Amina Mohamed and Dr Auma Obama during a photo session at State House.
Netizens questioned why the county boss did not move when all the other Government officials walked away to create room.
Here are some of the reactions:
Kenyan politicians are a special breed. I remember during Kibaki’s first term, three Cabinet Ministers were photographed in State House squeezing into a two-seater. None had the dignity to give up the seat. Just as @MikeSonko had to doea this snap hata kama its from the bushes. https://t.co/Si5TOZX6iZ— gathara (@gathara) July 16, 2018

At Diaspora Messenger,we think Mike Sonko scored big time and proved that he is number 3 after Uhuru and Ruto. Remember his quotes here below:
– Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko, on Friday, October 14, claimed that he was the third in command after President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.
– Sonko claimed that he was the acting president when both Uhuru and Ruto were out of the country,
