Sonko trolled for ‘tasteless’ interior decor at Mua home


Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has been trolled on social media after he shared a video of the interiors of his Mua home.

Online users lashed at his display of opulence as they also questioned his choice of finishes for his home.

Sonko, who has been home alone after his family went for a Christmas vacation in Mombasa, was showcasing his luxurious mansion and the view from his balcony.

@Tugengirl wrote; “Proof that money doesn’t buy you class or good taste. The decor & fixtures are barfworthy. Yuwa fave governor’s flex.”

@theremon replied; “It’s his home, it makes him happy, that all that matters.”

@iNeilson responded; “His home yes but he is showing it off to us and we don’t like his taste. Looks like a waste of the opulence that he is showing off. The house looks like a local.”

@evamutua added; “Agreed. The word tacky comes to mind.”

@Tugengirl commented; “I’m here wondering why he didn’t just hire a professional decorator with all that money.”

@Emungau replied; “This is what l have been saying about the attempts to ‘beautify’ Nairobi.”

@MoAngwenyi wrote; “I feel like people who have better homes are not showcasing enough to shame the rest. A designer told me they have clients who won’t even allow them to take pics for their portfolio since they don’t want to be copied.”

@kemboi stated; “Its a big big big house. Doing consistent decor everywhere maybe a challenge. My thoughts though.”
