Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko ‘lost the shirt off his back’ on Sunday when he visited Mathare slums, Nairobi on Sunday afternoon.
The outspoken Jubilee Party legislator had gone on a tour of Mlango Kubwa area to popularize the newly launched Jubilee Party.
During the function, Sonko’s team distributed Jubilee Party branded T-shirts to the boisterous youthful crowd.
One particularly enthusiastic citizen demanded for the red branded apparel, thus forcing Senator Sonko to disrobe and hand over his T-shirt.
In a 50-second mobile phone video posted on social media, Sonko is seen removing his shirt as the crowd cheers wildly.
“Due to public demand I had to donate my T-shirt [to someone] who insisted nimpe….Nimelearn lesson to be always carrying more T-shirts and Hoods kunawatu wanazipenda sana,” he said.
The clip shows Sonko shirtless for a few moments, as one member of his team scrambles to get him a top.
