Mike Sonko, a former Nairobi Governor has revealed that troubles at work almost led him to commit suicide.
Mike Sonko made this shocking revelation on Thursday.
Taking to his social media, the former county boss while eulogising Capital FM’s DJ Lithium who passed on on Wednesday, narrated how an incident with his inner circle left him feeling used and desperate.
“There was a time I almost committed suicide at City Hall after realising that my close friends at the county assembly and one from EALA sold me out. They incited and advised me to pick a fight with the Head of State over the changes at City Hall,” he said.
Without divulging much, Sonko seemed to be explaining how he was duped to hurl insults, which led to his eventual exit.
He explains he was left in the shadows while his perpetrators plotted his dismissal behind his back.
“It’s true, as men we go through a lot but watch out for friends who are not genuine and want you to sink,” he wrote.
Adding: “I couldn’t believe that my silent enemies were my own friends.”
The flamboyant politician further urged men to open up to each other and seek help whenever they face challenges.
“Men, when you undergo depression, open up to your friends like women do for each other,” he appealed.

This comes hardly two months after undergoing another procedure to get rid of her soft skin tags-noncancerous growths forming within the skin folds of the neck, armpits, breasts, groin area, and eyelids through a process known as Cauterization.
Risper disclosed that she desired to make the most out of her 30s, and scrapping off the tags was one of the ways she decided to do it as the socialite shared her experience via social media.
“Sooooo today I decided to remove skin tag from my body. 30s itaki makasiriko. @beautyquestspa am more than happy. This removal uses an electrocautery tool that heats a needle until it can burn through the stalk of the tag. The heat from the needle closes the wound so there is very little bleeding and often none when a skin tag is removed using this method,” she wrote.
In November 2020, Risper Faith first ventured into cosmetic surgery when she underwent liposuction.
According to the former Nairobi Diaries actress, her postpartum body affected her mental health and lowered her self-esteem.
“After giving birth I weighed myself and I was 100kgs over 22months after I had given birth I’m weighing around 116kgs and my body just keeps growing and growing, I don’t feel beautiful anymore, I don’t feel myself anymore. I have been so down, I’m so moody lately,” she said.
