Johnson Sakaja hangs out with American singer and chef Kelis

Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has stirred controversy following his recent meeting with American singer and chef Kelis.

The encounter took place just days after Kelis shared her experiences exploring Nairobi's Central Business District (CBD) and commented on its chaotic nature.

Kelis, known for her hit songs and culinary expertise, took to Instagram to document her adventures in Nairobi.

In a viral video shared on January 23, Kelis fearlessly navigated through the bustling streets of the Nairobi CBD.

She humorously remarked on the lack of pedestrian right-of-way, highlighting the vibrant yet chaotic atmosphere of the city.

The video captured the essence of Nairobi, with its lively streets filled with the sounds of hooting cars and bustling activity.

Shortly after Kelis' video gained traction, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja shared a series of photos on his Instagram account, showcasing his meeting with the renowned musician.

The images sparked reactions from his followers and ignited a wave of controversy.

Some commended the governor for engaging with international personalities and promoting Nairobi's cultural vibrancy.

Others, however, criticised the timing of the meeting, questioning whether it was appropriate given Kelis' recent comments about Nairobi's chaotic streets.

Meanwhile, some argue that it is essential for public figures to address pressing issues facing the city, including urban planning and pedestrian safety.

Here are some of the reactions
