Sonko won the seat with an overwhelming majority
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko this past Sunday (August 27), honoured his pre-election pledge to elders of the Akamba community by donating a 14-seater van to be used by them for their transport needs.
The elders, during campaigns in July, had requested a vehicle when they installed Sonko as a Kamba elder and backed his bid for the Nairobi Governor race.
Sonko handed over the vehicle at his expansive Mua Hills home on Sunday.
“I thank the elders who have walked the journey with me. I give them this 14-seater van as my appreciation and will give them another in due course,” he revealed.
Sonko also promised to buy a van for a group of women dancers who had accompanied the elders.
In return, the elders’ chairman Boniface Kilonzo, thanked the philanthropic politician noting the Governor was a visionary and should lead the Akamba community.
“As elders we have seen the future and are sure of Sonko’s good leadership. We will soon give him the mantle to lead this community,” Kilonzo said.
Sonko beat all odds to capture the Capital’s highest seat that also had on board his two rivals, former presidential candidate Peter Kenneth and the incumbent Evans Kidero. The latter conceded defeat.
