The Festive season is almost here and Kenyans online have begun to create a buzz around it. Other than the awaited Christmas and New year celebrations, Kenyans are all set for the major events scheduled for the month of December including Sauti Sol Fest, Mbosso’s, and other concerts that will be graced by International artists Joeboy, Poopcan & Konshens.
Other than the December mood kicking in, Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has kept the mouths of many Kenyans busy throughout the week thanks to his explosive revelations and video leak which sparked a huge discussion online. Although a section of Kenyans seems to be entertained by the former Governor’s revelation, a number of leaders including Nairobi Women Rep Passaris now want Sonko barred from social media.
In other news, Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential ambitions have yet again faced a huge setback after the revelation that he could be jailed for 5 years if found guilty in the ICC case. This update comes after the deputy president was for the first time directly linked to a plan that crippled his case.

“The evidence establishes that the pattern of witness interference was conducted for the benefit of, and in coordination with, William Samoei Ruto.” Read the court papers.
