Mike Sonko wants to work as a pig , Polycarp Igathe wants to work as a cat . Sonko loves it dirty. Igathe wants it official and done in a gentleman way. Couldn’t blend.

I wanted to laugh at the people of Nairobi for electing Mike Sonko and Polycarp Igathe on 8/8 then I remembered that my governor is Ferdinard Clifford Ndung’u Karanja Babayao Waititu,I’m crying now.
