‘Be Careful Who You Vote In,’ Mike Sonko’s Daughter Saumu Shouts

As we approach the August General elections, former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s daughter Saumu has a message for her fans.

Saumu advised her fans on her Instagram to be careful with the leaders they elect adding that the youths should not be used as tools to cause violence in the country.

She told her fan that most politicians are friends even after they lose a political seat.

“Let us be very careful who we vote for come August. Kenya needs a change for the youths, please don’t be used as a tool of violence during this time by some leaders and when they have voted in there is nothing they will do for you. Politicians have no permanent enemies so be very careful.”

Saumu’s dad, Mike Sonko, is vying for Mombasa governorship positions. She has also expressed her interest in joining politics.

In an interview with Massawe Japanni on Radio Jambo a while back, Saumu said her dad is her best mentor and she will always do things that she feels are inspired by him.

“I want to join politics like my dad and actually, I will vie for woman representative the next General Election,” she said.

“He is a father and a good dad. As a politician’s child, I fear being broke and that is why I am working so hard every day.”

Asked what different she will do as a woman representative, Saumu listed her priorities.

“I will make sure mental health is taught in all schools. We do not want to have these cases of children killing parents or each other.”


“Sanitary pads have to be given out for free. I will basically do things that will be of help to the girls, which will be a good thing.”
