Mike Sonko the former Nairobi city boss has reminsced on how one single phone call to former President Uhuru Kenyatta stopped illegal demolitions.

Taking to his X account filled with the spirit of throwing it back Thursday, the seasoned politician shared an old video captured during his time as the Nairobi governor.

The video depicted Sonko calling the former president on speaker phone infront of a multitude of people, during the demolitions of certain estates in Nairobi which included South B, Bank villa and the Winners Chapel Church.

In the call, the politician explains to Kenyatta that he has tried to write to the relevant authorities so as to stop the demolitions to no avail before giving away the name of  the Cabinet secretary in charge. The president promises to look into the matter as citizens cheer on.
