I’m not graduating to become Nairobi Governor, says Sonko

17 July 2015, 12:37 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has said he did not enroll for a degree programme at Kenya Methodist University with an intention of becoming the next Governor of Nairobi.

Sonko, who enrolled for a degree in Business Administration at the university in 2013, is set to graduate this Saturday, after he successfully completed his studies.

“I'm not graduating because I want to become the Nairobi Governor. I'm not graduating because I want to please voters in Nairobi to vote for me. This is not the time to ask for elective seats or votes. This is the time to focus on service delivery to the people.

“You did your part when you voted for us as your leaders. I went back to the campus because I wanted to have skills in leadership. I will also be pursuing a degree in political science in the near future,” Sonko revealed.

The Senator advised the youth who are still studying to be serious with their education and stop emulating him because he was not serious with his studies.

“Don't emulate me. I was the most notorious student in school because I made my first millions when I was in form 3. I thought money was everything but now look, I was forced to go back to campus almost 15 years after completing my form 4. Imagine if I was serious in pursuing my studies by that time. Do you think I would be where I am today? I'm sure by now Kenyans would be referring to me as Professor or Doctor Sonko,” he said.

He encouraged them to focus on their education saying it is the key to their future.

“Education is the key to your success. For some of you, your parents sacrifice a lot including selling your family properties to ensure you get education so kindly don't disappoint them. You are the future leaders of this country. You’re the future Sonkos and Sonkoreses. You are the future governors, senators, Mps, doctors, pilots, engineers, so please work hard for your better tomorrow. Your parents have high hopes in you,” he said.
