Besides his utter flamboyance and lack of ‘chills’ in his talking, flashy Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko is also known for his philanthropic and caring nature. He has numerous times hit the headlines after helping people in difficult situations.

Sonko went a mile further to set up the now infamous Sonko Rescue Team, which offers various humanitarian services to residents on Nairobi County and beyond. Due to his kindness, he’s been hailed by many as a true leader who cares for the masses.

Senator Sonko, via his Facebook page, has warned people to beware of the cons pretending to be him, demanding money from them for non-existent goods and services.
