What is the plan ya kesho, kesho- kutwa ya hawa watu?
A normal call-in interview between Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and Kiss FM Radio presenter Caroline Mutoko went haywire when the journalist insisted on questioning the flamboyant senator on long term solutions to the problems bedevilling poor Nairobians.
Mutoko whose line of questioning seemed to have annoyed the Senator found herself at the receiving end when the Sonko turned exploded like a volcano, splashing all manner of juicy expletives, some very closer to Mutoko’s bearded meat!
“You! How many peopleÂ f^ck Â you,” shouted Sonko to the shocked presenter who attempted in vain to keep the questioning within the confines of journalistic decency, remaining adamant on wanting to get from the Senator his future plans.
But the Senator was not yet done, “Wewe nyege zako na sigara zako peleka huko Carnivore” (roughly translated as ‘if your are horny go to Carnivore. . .and smoke there). Carnivore is a popular club in Nairobi.
Mutoko who attempted to explain to the Senator that what he was doing (giving out cash freebies to those in need) could be done by anyone, including her, and that Sonko’s position, being a Senator in government, could be used to shape policy decisions for the future, met the ire of the flashy senator, often accused by colleagues in Senate, as an “outsider”, because his personal conduct befits brothel attendants while his ‘official attire’, complete with bling bling, often resembles those of low self-esteemed musicians with a lot of money but empty brains!
Having recovered from the initial shock after Sonko went gaga, Mutoko, the iron lady of radio journalism then took on Sonko on twitter.
Sample the list of her three juiciest tweets:
Caroline Mutoko @Caroline_Mutoko
I don’t argue with idiots like Sonko, they will just lower me to their level then beat me with experience.
Were it not for the drugs he sells probably he could be somewhere near Gikomba begging
