The recent move by Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko to include alcoholic drink Hennessy in his donations to the less privileged to cushion them as the whole world fights the Coronavirus pandemic has attracted mixed reactions across the world.
Among those who reacted to the move is a popular US comedian, Shuler King, who has come out to publicly defend Sonko. According to the American star, there was nothing wrong with Sonko’s move.
In a video circulating on social media, the funnyman stated that if it were possible, he would vote for him and people should praise him instead of calling him out.
“Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko decided to put some Hennessy in the package and send it to people and he is under fire. For what? What are you mad at? What did he do wrong? I don’t see anything wrong. I would vote for him. I would do an absentee vote from all the way here to Kenya. You should raise some drinks and make a toast to Mike,” he stated.
However, the comedian recognized that Sonko was wrong in claiming Hennessy could kill coronavirus.
“If he has done some corrupt stuff, you should forgive this man. Mike risked his life to get liquor for people who are locked down in their houses. He called it a throat sanitizer and of course, alcohol does not kill coronavirus. But it doesn’t matter because Mike does not work for the WHO,” King said on his show.
