Ex Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been forced to eat a humble pie after mourning the fake death of Kenya's first Attorney General Charles Njonjo.
On Saturday evening, the politician turned bloggers, shared information alleging that the former AG was no more.
He shad posted that he was saddened by the unexpected demise of the old man.
The shared information however turned out to be false after the family of Njonjo broke the silence.
The family on Sunday morning through a press release cleared air of the death.
"Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I am well and enjoying my weekend at home as we celebrate Utamaduni Day,” read the press statement.
This has forced Sonko to a humble ground and apologise to the family and the man himself.
Sonko said that he learnt of the same from Njonjo's friend and did not bother to confirm if it was true.
This is the second time Sonko is sharing misleading information about popular people.
While still at office, he mourned a fake death of County Hall employee which he was also forced to apologise.
