It’s a no from Nairobians after Sonko mounts his latest statue
Is it a lion or a tiger -and is it blind? Nairobians cannot figure out what exactly Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has put up as part of his beautification programme.
Most residents have given their disapproval of the statue which was mounted this week at the University Way Roundabout.
On Wednesday, people took to social media and wondered why the Governor would approve such a statue.
Through hilarious answers on Twitter, many questioned which animal the sculpture was, saying that it was a far cry from the actual beast and it was a failed attempt in the beautification of the city.
Others wanted it pulled down and this is what they had to say.
Here are a few reactions:

Lion that looks like he's contemplating hard economic times aside…How about just Nairobi City or Nairobi County and not Nairobi City County..Sonko is so extra!

Bwana Sonko, how much did this cost? Where (in Kenya?) was it purchased? Which company (in Kenya?) made it?…am asking for a friend. @MikeSonko @lwalubengo @I_am_Gathoni #DevCon2019 #jkia @nairobi pic.twitter.com/1xmDDnzQHl
