Nairobi County governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko seems to have turned to God over his troubles but Kenyans on Twitter are picking fan out of it.
In a video doing rounds on social media, the Nairobi county chief who has been hence barred from accessing his office over a graft case facing him is seen committing his life to Christ.
Sonko is seen singing along a praise and worship song as tears flow down his chicks.
The song seems to be his only source of hope as it says ” I know my savior is alive”.
“Najuaa.. Mkombozi wangu, anaishii…,” sings Sonko.
Kenyans are however hilariously reacting to the video, with some arguing that the governor flew to close to the sun with feathers fixed with wax.
Sonko on Thursday issued a statement via his social media platforms a day after he was released on bail.
The governor admitted that the past few days had been difficult for him but thanked his family for standing with him.
“The last few days have been a bit difficult. However, I would like to thank my family, friends well-wishers and all of you the great people of Nairobi for standing with me.
“I am home now and continuing with my treatment after posting bail through the assistance of my supporters, friends and family,” he said.
Sonko was on Tuesday taken to the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) after reportedly falling ill at the Kamiti Maximum Prison where he was remanded.
His defence team argued before Anti-Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti that the governor was sick and required medical attention after being roughed up by security personnel who arrested him in Voi last week.
