Staffs and clients at a Nakuru hotel were on Sunday morning left in shock after Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko allegedly forced a chef and one of the facility’s managers to taste his breakfast before he could eat it.
Governor Sonko is said to have ordered breakfast on Sunday morning after spending Saturday night at the four-star hotel, according to The Standard.
“The hotel chef and manager had to take two mouthfuls in front of him before to confirm the food was safe,” one of the hotel’s customers, who witnessed the incident, told The Standard.
On Saturday night, business at the popular hotel was temporarily disrupted after Sonko arrived in a huge motorcade comprising of a Mercedes Benz, two Landcruiser V8s, a Lexus LX 570 and a Nissan Patrol Platinum V8 among others. A mini-fire engine belonging to Nairobi County government was also part of his convoy.
“Why does he have to travel with a fire engine in tow? This man is enjoying life. I hope these are not taxpayers’ money,” a client at the hotel told The Standard.
The politician was in Nakuru to attend this year’s National Music Festivals and addressed residents before proceeding to the hotel.
"A stopover in Nakuru town advocating matters Wanjiku and the Big Four Agenda. We as leaders must always address issues affecting the common mwananchi. Doing so is taking development to the doorsteps of Adhiambo, Wanjiku, Nzioka, Wafula and the less fortunate in the society," Sonko tweeted.
"At Nakuru for this year’s National Music Festivals. Nairobi region is the defending champions. As the Good Deeds ambassador and the Governor of the great city I’ll surprise schools from Nairobi who are participating in this year’s music festivals if they emerge winners," he said in another tweet.
