VIDEO: Mike Sonko’s UN speech impresses Kenyans

Governor Mike Sonko.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is trending on the internet following his speech at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, United States.

Sonko’s eloquence coupled with a European twang in his speech to the forum discussing the role of cities in the global agenda has impressed Kenyans.

“Nairobi was recently declared one of the most resilient cities in the world. However we too face the same challenges that face most growing cities which include a strain on services such as water supply, waste management and expansion of infrastructure to match the rapid population growth,” said Sonko, who has in the past been ridiculed over his grasp of the English language.
