Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has made a U-turn, heaping praises ion President Uhuru Kenyatta who he hailed as a performer, attaching pictures to drive his point home.

Sonko noted that aside from the usual politics, the head of state leaves behind a solid legacy of development.

Perhaps aware of the fact that a section of netizens will be suspicious of his change of heart, Sonko noted that his post was made without any coercion to appreciate the president’s good work that forms part of his legacy.

“Jokes and politics aside. Musiseme hii ni kufinywa., hakuna kufinywa nilifinywa. Truly speaking Jamaa anachapa Job.” Sonko noted in the post that was accompanied by photos of the head of state launching several projects.

 Sonko who was a fierce critic of the president surprised many.

Among the projects that he highlighted are the Nairobi Expressway, The Standard Gauge Railway, The Greenpark Bus Terminus and several Stadia constructed under the president’s watch.

He also noted that the head of state addressed the perennial problem of landlessness by issuing title deeds.

Indeed Kenya has witnessed massive infrastructural development under the reign of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The head of state steered the Jubilee administration from the shackles of corruption that was attributed to a few elements in his administration who he sacked immediately.

Among those sacked in the wake of massive corruption scandals are former Treasury CS Henry Rotich, former Kenya Power Company Managing Director Ken Tarus (left) and his predecessor Ben Chumo.

Rasid Echesa (former Sports CS) and Mwangi Kiunjuri (former Agriculture CS) were also shown the door as the president kicked out state officials who had opted to engage in politics instead of delivering the big 4 agenda.

Since then, significant progress has been made with the head of state barring his deputy and other politicians from using the launch of state projects to advance their political careers.
