Sonko’s daughter showered with money gifts at her graduation bash
The eldest daughter of Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko was showered with cash and cheques by guests who attended her graduation party on Thursday night.
The flambouyant senator had spared no cost to host the lavish party at his palatial residence in Mua Hills, Machakos County, that is estimated to have cost millions.
In total, he hired 15 musicians to perform at the event, as well as top notch caterers and sound system.
A source told Nairobi News that some of the invited guests gave Saumu Mbuvi wads of cash and cheques as their way of congratulating her on her milestone.
“Watu walikatia huyo dem cheques nono. Some were saying they are giving her the money so that she can continue to pursue her education. And it was not little money, they were ranging from Sh250, 000 to a million shillings,” said the source.
But although the Senator went all out to make his guests comfortable for the night long celebrations, some left the party grumbling for not getting ‘gifts’ from the politician who is well known for his generosity.
“Although the party was great, it was filled with a lot of sycophants who treated Sonko like a god. They were chanting his name especially before he gave a speech,” said the source.
He went on: “Most of these guys were enthusiastic because maybe they had hopes that they would be given something by the senator – which was not the case.”
