Sonko’s Club Burnt Down, One Dead

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is in mourning after one of his employees was killed in a mysterious fire.

The tragic incident occurred on Monday night at Club Casaurina in Nairobi’s Buruburu area. The Nairobi governor owns the establishment.

Firefighters were called to the scene but little was done to salvage the situation that left one employee dead.

On Tuesday morning, at around 3 am, the flamboyant politician took to his Facebook page where he sent out his condolences to the employee identified as Kilunda.

“I serve a very faithful God. My God never lets me down. RIP Kilunda,” Sonko’s post read. It was accompanied by photos of the popular club on fire.

It was not clear on the cause of the incident, but speculation was rife that the fire might have been the work of arson by the Governor’s political enemies.

Former Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua who is a close associate of Sonko linked the fire to City Hall cartels that have been frustrated by the reforms introduced by the new Nairobi boss.

“City hall cartels should know people! This action will make Governor Sonko even more vicious towards collecting revenue in the County. Burning one his property is like a storm in a tea cup. Team God first,” Mbugua warned.
