Former Nairobi governor, Mike Sonko, has taken to social media to express his heartfelt celebration of his adopted son, Gift Osinya, as he marks his 22nd birthday.

Sonko, filled with pride, shared that Gift had grown rapidly and was currently a second-year student at Scott's Christian University.

Sonko reminisced about the challenging times 10 years ago, when critics doubted his intentions regarding Gift and his younger brother, Baby Satrin, who he had rescued from a hail of bullets fired by Al-Shabaab terrorists that tragically took their mother's life.

"You have really grown very fast and now a 2nd-year student at the Scott's Christian University. However, Ten years ago a big number of my critics thought I was just playing PR with you and your younger brother Baby Satrin whom you rescued from a hail of bullets from the al-Shabab terrorists who had shot dead your late mum," Sonko wrote.

"Today I tell the rest of the world that the devil is a liar for God wiped your tears with abundant happiness and love," read Sonko's post.

Addressing Gift directly, Sonko acknowledged him as a true blessing to their family. He extended his heartfelt wishes for Gift to experience life's greatest joy.

Sonko concluded his message with a prayer, invoking the protection and guidance of the God who saved Gift's life and that of his younger brother.
