How I sneaked rolls of bhang to Parliament, says Sonko as he lifts lid on ‘dark’ past

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has lifted the lid on his bhang-smoking past.

Speaking on Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange Live on Wednesday, January 23 Sonko revealed that he has since stopped smoking marijuana, popularly known as weed among the youth.

Sonko alleged that during his time as Makadara MP he and his then-Parliamentary colleague [name withheld] would engage in bhang-smoking spree in the toilets in Kenya’s National Assembly.

“…We threw a lot of stones when we were MPs; smoked a lot of weed; we would hide them in our socks and then go smoke [the bhang] in the [men’s] toilet,” he said, quickly adding the disclaimer: “But I don’t smoke [bhang] anymore.”

During the interview, Sonko addressed a wide array of issues pertaining to his leadership style and the state of development and order in the capital.

The governor said he would “continue blackmailing and firing ‘corrupt’ county staff members” so long as they fail to toe the line – as per his standards.
