An online debate has ensued after KTN shared a post on the recent rating of three city Governors; Anyang' Nyong'o (Kisumu) Hassan Joho (Mombasa), and Mike Sonko Nairobi.
The post dubbed ‘Nairobi sinks, Kisumu rises’ elicited mixed reactions among supporters of Prof Nyong'o and his Nairobi counterpart.
The post was not received well with a section of online users hitting out at Nyong'o, even as another group praised his leadership.
Here are some reactions:
“Good job Prof Nyong’o. Devolution in Kisumu is in safe hands. You have never disappointed me my able governor,” said Dave Hellon.
“Sonko got D+ strong,” noted Victor Olouch.
“That should not make you think that Sonko is not working. I believe someone from the inside is fighting Sonko,” said Millicent Kirui.
“Prof this was injustice. How can they compare you with your academic qualifications? They cannot present any papers. You are not in the same league with anyone. It is either they find someone with a doctorate degree or they leave you in peace to execute your duties to the elites of Kisumu County,” stated Germaine Mc’aluo.
“What have you done to the people of Kisumu? Stop bragging with no track record. Nairobi is far ahead of you,” said Nyama Ngata.
“You can never beat Sonko no matter how hard you try. Sonko is a leader born as a leader and will always lead as a leader for the next 20 years,” said John Kisauni.
“Nyong’o went to school for this, he is a hard leader and is suffering a terminal illness. That combination always gives men a perspective to see things differently,” stated Mike Okuto.
