Mike Sonko’s late father Gideon Kioko Kivanguli was laid to rest yesterday in Machakos County. The funeral was attended by the high and mighty starting from President Uhuru Kenyatta. It was not just the dignitaries who raised the profile of the sombre occasion, the deceased was laid to rest in style. Mzee Kioko’s coffin was decked in gold and diamond pieces. The motorcade accompanying the coffin comprised of top of the range vehicles with outriders causing a jam along Mombasa Road. Part of the convoy had an accident involving Mercedes Benz vehicles with the disbanded Sonko Rescue Team intervening to save the situation.
The day before the funeral, Sonko invited the public to attend the funeral via his social media platform. The funeral was well-attended as political winds blew in the wake of the tussle between Kalonzo Musyoka and Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua of the Maendeleo Chap Chap brigade.
Sonko’s father died early last week in hospital as he was undergoing treatment. .
