Sonko celebrates his adopted son Osinya on his 22nd birthday

Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Thursday, May 18 celebrated his adopted son, Gift Osinya, on his 22nd birthday.

Osinya, who was adopted by the then-Nairobi Senator in 2014, is currently a second-year student at Scott’s Christian University.

“You have really grown very fast and now a 2nd-year student at Scott’s Christian University.

“However, 10 years ago a big number of my critics thought I was just playing PR with you and your younger brother Baby Satrin whom you rescued from a hail of bullets from the Al-Shabab terrorists who had shot dead your late Mum,” Sonko wrote on his Twitter account.

Sonko describes Osinya as gift

He added: “I can remember very vividly your moment of tears during the first difficult days you joined us as a family.

“Today I tell the rest of the world that the devil is a liar for God wiped your tears with abundant happiness and love. Gift Osinya you are a gift of blessing as part of our family, may you be gifted with life’s biggest joy.

“Today is again a moment of great joy and a big milestone for us as a family to celebrate your 22nd birthday. I pray that the God of Daniel, Meshack, and Abednego who saved your life, and that of your younger brother, walks with you at all times. Happy birthday to you.”
