If Mike Sonko vies for any position, apart from the presidency, I’ll vote him without second thinking.
As far as I am concerned, Sonko is doing a job.
And his critics, hold your malnourished horses, spare me “his source of money is questionable”, “He fools people with goodies and lip services” or “he doesn’t provide lasting solutions to problems facing his electorates’ and other tinga tinga tales. I have heard enough of that.
Sonko is not clean so are ALL politicians. Sonko advances his own interests, just as ALL politicians. Sonko is not an Angel, so are ALL political Figures.
But as far as I am concerned, He’s outstanding.Not only is he outstanding in his weird ways of achieving publicity but he is too in keeping in touch with his people. He identifies with the common man, a thing rare in politicians. More like a gold medal for Tanzania’s athletes at Olympics.
He’s accessible too. His contacts are all over more than xaxa syndrome on Facebook. And most importantly, he genuinely offers help to those he can.
He, just like all the politicians eat from the public coffers. But while many Eat alone, he eats WITH his people.
