After Kenya emerged winner in the Social and Economic Equity Award, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko bragged on social media on how Nairobi beat 105 cities in the world.

His sentiments did not excite a resident of Nairobi. A man who identifies as John Thuo, took to Sonko’s Facebook post as he felt we dint deserve the award.


According to him, countries like Kigali and Kampala were far much better than Nairobi.


“Award? Were these people drunk? Was there anyone on the ground for the same? You can’t even beat Kampala. Leave alone Kigali,” commented Thuo.


The governor in return saw it fit to give Mr. Thuo a dose of his own words as he felt the county deserved the award.


“They were on the ground na kama umejam amsha bibi yako avunje glass aigrind akupe ukunywe (They were on the ground and if you are angry, wake your wife up to grind you some broken glass so you can drink it),” Sonko responded.
