In his latest rampage of theatrics, Governor Mike Sonko has promised Nairobi residents that he will be back to fix the Capital very soon.
A viral video posted on social media shows Sonko dropping bars outside Novotel Hotel, asking unnamed people to stop messing up Nairobi.
“Hii ni ufala gani mnafanya? relax guys mimi ninarudi (What kind of nonsense is this that you are doing? Relax, I am coming back),” Sonko warns in the video.

“Nyote ni mafala, mnapigana mchana (You are all idiots, fighting in broad daylight),” Sonko says in the video suspected to be directed at warring Nairobi County MCAs.
“That is the Capital Cirry of Kenya,” the enraged governor, dressed in a flashy Balenciaga outfit rants.
“Stop being jokes!” he concluded before breaking into a hilarious dance routine.
Sonko has been in France for the better part of the week for the Milan Pact Awards 2019.
Nairobi bagged the Social and Economic Equity Award.
Violence broke out amongst Nairobi MCAs on Wednesday after embattled County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi resumed office after the court reinstated her.
The MCAs who had impeached her in 2018, led by Assembly Leader of Majority Abdi Guyo, stormed her office in an attempt to throw her out once again.
Governor Sonko is not new to social media theatrics. He often shares controversial and hilarious videos and audio clips alike of himself.
Its the 3rd Friday in a Row

The governor is also notorious for recording conversations between himself and other politicians, which he then uses to wage war against the latter at his own convenience.
In June, Sonko shared a recording of an alleged phone call between him and Nairobi County Woman Representative Esther Passaris discussing several issues, including ODM leader Raila Odinga.
He had, in 2018, hit the headlines for leaking an alleged phone-call between himself and Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, who was imploring him to release his wife Susan Waititu after she was arrested for occupying an illegal building within Nairobi.
