Sonko should grow up and act like a governor – Nairobi News

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko urgently needs to put his vulgar tongue on a leash.

His claim to fame might have been the Shakespearean melodrama that involved punching walls and hideous matchy-matchy outfits, but Sonko needs to realise those days are behind him.

One would have hoped after Nairobians overwhelmingly turned out to vote for him, he would at the very least pretend to change his ways. Change he did—his clothes—for he swapped the awkward outfits with a bespoke slim-fit suit, but that’s as far as it goes.

What we have now is the same old Sonko, a little well spoken than before (give credit where it is due), but as foul-mouth and profane as they come. The public melt downs we saw when was rolling on the road alongside frenzied supporters have graduated into offensive and distasteful interviews in which he shreds his poor victims in the full glare of national television.

The most recent melt down was two nights ago, when he went on a rampage against his Kiambu counterpart Governor Ferdinand Waititu.

When asked by the interviewer what he had to say about Waitutu’s criticisms of his leadership, Sonko went ballistic: “I think he used to smoke a lot of ‘bhangi’ when he was an MP,” he said, “…I am a witness to this, we used to go to a certain toilet there…we used to smoke a lot of bhangi… in fact, he was hiding bhangi in the socks…”

ABUSE AND INSULTS

We thought Sonko would be Nairobi’s saving grace, but he is fast hurtling into Nairobi’s top disgrace. I am among the millions of Nairobi residents who are massively disappointed in Sonko.

Of course, this is not the first time Sonko has been publicly abusive. In his days as a senator, he insulted a well-meaning female radio presenter who put him to task about his role in influencing policy. Insults, it would appear, come more naturally to Sonko than tears do to the deputy president.

I will give credit where due. Sonko’s heart seems to be in the right place. I mean, I have never seen a leader who protects the poor and the lowly in society like Sonko. Few things hurt Sonko more than seeing people suffer and most of you will agree with me that Sonko is a man with a big heart.

Let’s state the facts. Another fact is that he is not only immensely popular with the masses—which is great for a politician—but he also comes across as a street-smart and shrewd guy who, even though many may doubt his source of wealth, most will agree Sonko has done well for himself so far.

And if you are a Nairobian like me, you might also agree he is in his own way trying to straighten out the city. I may not agree with all his policies, but everyday he proves he is a better man than the clown we had previously.

IMPROVED SONKO

Sonko has a lot going for him. He is charismatic, he has the energy and he seems to have a long political life ahead of him.

But, he needs to act more like a governor of the city of Nairobi and not the MCA type of behaviour he is exhibiting lately. Sonko is not the first politician to run his mouth on national television, but he must realise we hold him to a higher standard because he is not just any other governor, he is the governor of the capital city of Kenya—and that has to count for something.

I am impressed by his newly-found mastery of English. His command of language today is a far cry from the gubernatorial debates when Miguna Miguna would have him for lunch. I am impressed he is making effort to shift from the old Sonko to a new and improved Sonko.

But whoever is advising Sonko needs to tell him some things are better left unsaid. For example, we don’t need to know what he smokes and who he smokes it with.

When he was starting out as a young and revolutionary MP, his youth afforded him the luxury of the craziness we witnessed. However, he is no longer the youthful Madaraka MP, but the governor of a city that is so important not just to this country, but to the region. And he needs to step up.

So, dear Sonko, I hope you are reading this. Slow down on the insults because your cirry needs you!

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
