"Day one, 64,000 followers. I think I have enjoyed this. Asanteni sana. Finishing up the office work wacha niende home and relax," Sakaja stated.

The account only followed one person identified as Mbaka and fans were quick to put the governor to task seeking to know the only person he follows on TikTok.

"So I can see everyone is asking who is this one person I'm following. That is my social media manager. Ameniingiza kwa hii mtaa ya TikTok. So follow her as well," Sakaja explained.
