Sonko appeared on Citizen News last night, and many Kenyans were hearing him speak in fluent uninterrupted English for the first time.
The former Makadara legislator was scheduled to face off with Margaret Wanjiru, but the latter did not show up. However, that did not stop the controversial Sonko from stating what he’ll do for the people of Nairobi, quoting the constitution several times, and explaining how he made his millions, and surprisingly, he did it in very good English.
Here is what Kenyans thought of his appearance.
