Sonko, Grand Mullah trade insults on Twitter

Nairobi governor Mike Sonko on Friday unleashed a Twitter war on lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi which escalated into an ugly back and forth bitter exchange between the two.

The governor tagged the lawyer in his abusive post in which at the same time he bragged about how he managed to beat Ahmednasir in court.

Sonko wrote that he not only beat the lawyer at the High Court but also at the Court of Appeal in tweet laced with abusive adjectives.

But Ahmednassir responded swiftly with an equally demeaning tweet directed at Sonko.

The ugly exchange on Twitter came just hours after the fiery lawyer had tagged President Uhuru Kenyatta in a tweet calling for the disbandment of Nairobi County citing county government’s incompetence.

Tweeps who followed the bitter exchange accused the two of inappropriately parading their differences online.

@_AhmedJama_ questioned, “Sonko, why did you vie for a high office if you were to insult anyone that criticizes you on social media.”

@abanbasii added, “Now the FAILED Governor has put his spree in the social media.VERY NAIVE who can’t withstand the simplest critique. Nairobi county FAILED MISERABLY. Dissolving it is the ONLY SOLUTION.”

@saimbare tweeted, “@MikeSonko, if u cd put all these energy on service delivery to the residents of Nairobi.”
