Janet Mbugua praises Mike Sonko: I feel like we need more leaders to stand up like him

Since taking the Nairobi County Office, Governor Mike Sonko has been a man facing criticism from his work. Many Kenyans have always insisted he’s not fit for office despite lining up and voting him in.

Janet Mbugua, though not really a fan of the governor, recently took to social media to share that Sonko made the right move after announcing Chandarana Supermarkets licenses’ were revoked after a ‘racist’ email went viral.

Speak up

The leaked email from the supermarket was instructing managers to focus on the white clientele.

“In as much as I don’t think what Sonko did completely solve the issue, cancelling licenses means affecting businesses, means affecting the employees of this company meaning they don’t have work. This is what I will say, the Governor made a strong statement by saying ‘You will treat our people with respect’ and for me, I feel like that is one of the solutions. For leaders to stand up and say ‘Look you are welcome to work in our country, have your own companies and build your own empires but don’t mistreat our citizens.’” said Janet.


“I feel like we need more leaders to stand up and say that …because it’s not just the leaked emails or the apology it’s the nature of how a lot of these companies treat Kenyans. It’s the nature of how the way racism is engrained in these companies; sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes is in your face,” Janet said in her Vlog.


Sonko: I don’t hate Kikuyus. All my Mpango wa kandos are Kikuyu  

Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has come out to state that he doesn’t hate any tribe, especially Kikuyu unlike what some have been speculating.

The governor was responding to rumors that he has sidelined the tribe in his government and frustrating those who are holding powerful offices in the county.

What surprised many though is how Sonko said that it when defending his office. In a rather unexpected turn, the governor, who is married, claimed that he has Mpango wa Kando who are all Kikuyu.

“People say Sonko hates Kikuyu, it’s untrue. I have nominated over 10 Kikuyu MCAS, my wife is a Kikuyu, all my side dishes and in laws are Kikuyu. Even the incoming deputy governor is a Kikuyu,” Sonko said.
