King of Crowd Stands Out as Mike Sonko Brings Nairobi to Standstill When DP Ruto Was Rocking in Embu
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Sunday flexed his crowd-pulling muscles after a long period of not doing so.
In the recent past, it is the Deputy President William Ruto who has been pulling out huge crowds in different parts of the country.
His close rival in the same game has been ODM leader Raila Odinga, but on Sunday, Governor Sonko also joined the crowd-pulling list of politicians when he brought a section of Nairobi County to a standstill.
The Governor together with at least 30 Members of County Assembly attended a church service at Soweto Catholic Church in Kayole.
Sonko took to social media and shared photos showing how he managed to stop business in the area after thousands of residents turned up on the roadside to hear from him.
When Sonko was in Nairobi, DP Ruto was in Nairobi County where effected rocked the place, with a multitude attending his rally, clearing indicating he is still the king of crowd-pulling.
Sonko used the opportunity he had while in Kayole to address some issues that made him to shoot down the 2020/2021 Appropriation Bill.
He said that the Finance Budget Committee had come up with a good document only for other individuals to change what they had agreed on.
“The MCAs, through the Finance Budget and Appropriation Committee, had made a good document which we had all agreed on but unfortunately some people came in with their own changes,” Sonko said.
DP Ruto's message
Among the several messages he had for people of Embu and Kenyans at large, DP Ruto called out for unity among all leaders.
"Leaders must work together and dedicate their energy and time at ensuring that our country is placed on a sustainable and resilient path that will transform the lives of ordinary Kenyans rather than embarking on discussions about the creation of political position," he tweeted.
