I thought I was the only one - Mike Sonko

Former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko on Wednesday conveyed his take on domestic violence in a post on his social media pages.

The former governor used a photo of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his family on the post though he did not mention why he had chosen to use the photo.

In the picture, President Kenyatta is holding his last born son while standing beside his wife, First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and their other two children.

The undated photo also includes former First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta and seemed to have been taken some decades ago.

Sonko's caption read: "I thought I was the only one who got married and started a family at an early age...kumbe tuko wengi. Hii mambo ni kujipanga mapema. Lakini pia tuheshimu wazazi wetu, mabibi zetu, na watoto wetu."

"The recent cases of domestic violence involving the killing of spouses, children and even parents like the case of the young man in Kisumu are extremely disturbing, and we need to bring this bad culture to an end as Kenyans," the former Governor added.
