MCA Anne Muthoni becomes overnight star after Sonko opened can of worms
MCA Anne Muthoni becomes overnight star after Sonko opened can of worms: Barely an hour after Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, in his nature, opened a can of worms at Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s memorial service, netizens were up in arms to give a piece of their mind. This has ended up making Kenya’s top trend ‘Anita’, after Sonko revealed the fallen MP’s unknown life.
During his speech, Sonko made an unprecedented, but clearly calculated step to announce that the late Ken Okoth had a child with a woman other than the one he had publicly declared his wife.
The ‘other woman’, known as Anita as Sonko unveiled, was a nurse under his ‘Sonko Rescue Team’ when Okoth met her. The governor further extended his “respect” for MP Okoth by nominating Anita to the county assembly.
Ken will not forgive me if I don’t save the situation. Ken fell in love with a nurse called Anita from Sonko rescue team. In 2017, he asked me to help him nominate his second wife to the county assembly and out of respect I did nominate her – Sonko at Ken Okoth’s memorial service
This spurred mixed reactions by Kenyans on Twitter, some who thought the governor was not entirely sober when he made the speech.
Anita too made it to the top trends with all kinds of sentiments towards her.
