Kenya: Fed Up Nairobians Tag Sonko in Flood Photos

Just hours after Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko gave a hotline for residents to call when marooned in ongoing rains, fed up Nairobians have opted to tag him on photos and videos.

Sonko's Tuesday morning announcement was met with protests that the county should have prepared in good time and unblocked all drainage.

The rains that pounded the city Tuesday afternoon flooded sections of estates and roads.

Nairobians used social media instead of the contacts given by Sonko.

Oyaah Mike Sonko,

Mother nature will force you appoint a Deputy Governor, Kibera is a mess. If you don't put sustainable intervention in place this will be the case every year.

Send the team you launched yesterday. Kazi kwako.#NairobiRains pic.twitter.com/mwsQnLbfSg
