Former Nairobi County governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko is today a troubled man, watching helplessly as the Kenya Anti-corruption Commission noose tightens around his neck.

The former Shimo la Tewa prison inmate has watched his empire collapse at his feet unable to do anything about it as phone calls to former powerful friends go unanswered and former buddies abanding him.

From his palatial home in Manzoni, Machakos County a sulking Sonko watches as the world goes by almost in an Afro Cinema-like script of from grass to grace and grass again! A bitter Sonko blames his misfortunes on “Betrayal In The City”! He says he suffered deep depression and took to hitting the bottle very hard! He went into depression almost driven to attempted suicide. The man whose path you once crossed at your peril is a completely subdued politician today only worried about his political future, his possessions including the palace he built in Manzoni.

Last year when a mob lynched notorious child killer Wanjala, he offered 200k to the victims, the jury is still out there whether he delivered the money or not! The same happened with the killers of popular football fan Isaac Juma. He is yet to hand over 150k promised to anyone who would find the suspect in the murder before the police

Sleuths from the Anti-corruption Commission charged him in court over the multi-million-shilling scandals. EACC has since seized a fleet of Sonko Rescue Team vehicles, water and garbage trucks that were being run by his wife. The man who once put a call to President Uhuru Kenyatta on speaker in 2014 before a crowd can now hardly access any government office except the courts!

The once flashy freewheeling wealthy politician would lavish cash on almost anything that pricked his ego. He was known to send cash to anybody engaging his vanity at the touch of a button by Mpesa, today there is no such idle cash lying around. Last year when a mob lynched notorious child killer Wanjala, he offered 200k to the victims, the jury is still out there whether he delivered the money or not! The same happened with the killers of popular football fan Isaac Juma. He is yet to hand over 150k promised to anyone who would find the suspect in the murder before the police.

Sonko claims no one should write him off as he will run for governor again but is yet to launch his bid. Anti-corruption cases put his integrity threshold on the line. Just like his former ally former Kiambu governor Ferdinand Waititu who faces a multi-million-shilling graft case. Waititu has already launched branded vehicles ready to contest for governor of Nairobi County!
