Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has gone against his word and confirmed he carried a gun to the Dusit D2 hotel.
The governor said he carried a pistol days after his communications office stated what was bulging in his pocket was a power bank.
READY TO SHOOT
Sonko was the guest of the JKL live on Citizen TV where he said he carried the gun in his private capacity as a licensed holder and for security purposes.
Social media users had last week made jokes after Sonko appeared at the Dusit D2 Hotel on Wednesday morning with a pistol protruding from his pocket.
The vocal governor was donning a t-shirt, a sleeveless jacket, a hat and dark sunglasses in the company of his aides and Security.
He had had accompanied Internal Security Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang’i, to the scene, where the CS gave a press briefing on the police operations at the scene of the terror attack.
