Governor Sonko's Stay in City Hotel Raises Questions

By Kipchumba Some

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has in recent months raised eyebrows by operating from the presidential suite of a luxury hotel in the city.

On most days, Mr Sonko's official convoy can be seen outside the Nairobi Safari Club where he attends to some of his visitors whenever he is not at his City Hall office.

But in response to Sunday Nation enquiries, Mr Sonko has said that he is paying from his own pocket for his four-month stay at the hotel in the iconic Lillian Towers that he added also served as his campaign headquarters for the August 8 General Election.
