Impeached Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko retaliated today on Facebook. Wrote a scathing piece about President Uhuru Kenyatta. However, at the grand scheme of things. The former Governor might be right, but is late to the party.
For a man drinking, partying and enjoying the perks of office. Sonko the socialite and high ranking official is maybe the last brother you expect writing a deep piece or even have valid points. Yes, the man could campaign and get himself elected. However, as long as you have the right allies and speaks well enough. The dynasties can take you a long. Especially, if you toy around and wants to be friendly with the cartels. The likes of Sonko would play with anyone, as long as he got some of the action.
That is why it’s inspiring that the dwell on the misgivings of Kenyatta. Not like Sonko is the Governator or the straight-forward good governance in the flesh. No, nobody would think that Mikey Mike Sonko would offer brilliance and government services in a revolutionary way. Unless, some fun stunts, flashing gold and expensive clothes. The man was more Ali G, than being an actual governor.
This is why today is epic. That his rant was a exceptional. Sonko acted holier than thou. A man who everyone has seen dance, toy around with people and play politics. Therefore, his downfall was his arrogance and lack of action in office. He could have played loyal and sucked it up. Then the Kenyatta’s and such would have most likely left him of the hook. However, he aimed at the kings and missed.
He might have some suction and some popularity. Nevertheless, the gig is up. Yes, the so called impeachment of Kenyatta would be damning and be a valid verdict of his Presidency. As there is enough scandals and misgivings. That there should be something the National Assembly could charge him and find him guilty of. However, most of them are loyal to Kenyatta and they want his blessings. So, not like they will risk losing the good while they are ahead.
This is why the idea of impeachment of Kenyatta will not happened. The ones who is supposed to do it. Will never challenge and the ones writing up on it. Is already retired or irrelevant at best. That is why the loss of the title is the reason for today’s stunt.
Sonko wish he was in good graces. He would trade this failure and loss with anyone. The utter embarrassment and brutal end will haunt Sonko. That is why he wants this pain on Kenyatta. Not that it will happen at this point. Nobody want to do that and loose all of their political capital on a fool errand. There is nothing to gain, except brownie-points and participating trophies.
Sonko better continue to drink his Hennessey and enjoy the nightlife. Later in life he can tell war-stories and political anecdotes at Universities. Right now, the bitter blow is hurting his pride. That is why his seeking vengeance. A call that nobody will answer and the ones that does. Will not have the manpower or ability to pull it off. Peace.
