Nairobi Governor, Mike Mbuvi Sonko was engaged in honouring a girl who composed a poem that eulogized her schoolmates who perished in the classroom disaster at Kinderstar School in Buruburu.
Looking a shadow of his former boisterous self Sonko then toured the new Dandora Stadium in Embakasi North, sub-county, promising that the county government would continue with construction of new stadia.
Earmarked for immediate construction, Sonko said, are stadia in Kihumbuini, Ziwani, Kariokor, Kangemi and Woodley Wards.
But even as he made this promises, Nairobi and were constrained to think he left it a bit too late.
Just a few days ago General Mohammed Badi of the Nairobi Metropolitan Services had toured the city, inspecting major projects accomplished by the new city management team, in the company of none other than the president of the Republic, Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta.
In a high powered delegation at which Sonko was visibly absent, the improved health, sanitary, housing and city planning projects were visited.
During the celebrations marking the Nairobi Metropolitan Services 100 days in office, President Uhuru Kenyatta heaped praises on General Mohammed Badi, promising to work together in future to achieve the dream of making the city top among the world's metropolis.
Ever since he was pushed to sign the decree abdicating some of his roles to the newly formed service, Sonko has found himself losing relevance in the day today running of the city of Nairobi.
Reports of destruction of his personal office further point out to a besieged Governor, whose roles are now more ceremonial than executive.
Sonko will have himself to blame for squandering the opportunity to rebrand himself as a sober person worthy of the coveted position of Nairobi Governor.
He chose instead to roam the world capitals, flouting his expensive jewellery and engaging in drunken orgies.
In a manner of speech, for Mike Mbuvi Sonko, the hens have come to roost.
