Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Wednesday, April 22, made it to US late-night television as he appeared on Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show.
The governor was featured over his controversial move to provide city residents with Covid-19 care packages containing small bottles of Hennessy cognac, among other essential food items and toiletries.
Noah hilariously questioned the governor’s false claim that the cognac had Coronavirus-killing properties.
“Drinking Hennessy might help you with many things; it can help you dance better, it can help you relax, and it can probably help you try a Busta Rhymes song at Karaoke.
“But the one thing it will not do is help you cure Coronavirus. First of all its not 70% alcohol, it’s only 40% which is too low to kill the virus, and no matter how strong it is, drinking alcohol does not kill viruses,” he stated.
Referencing Sonko’s Kenzo t-shirt and the bright yellow jacket he wore in his viral press briefing, however, Trevor Noah complimented the Governor’s fashion.
“While this governor’s health advice isn’t great, I’ve got to admit his Corona fashion game is pretty strong man.
“I mean, look at that, huh? Look at that. He looks like the most Florida man in Africa. The last king of NASCAR.
“He looks like a transformer who got stuck,” Noah stated while mimicking sounds from the hit movie franchise Transformers.
