It what Ex-Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko termed as, “Time has run so fast celebrating God’s miracle yet again”, the young son he adopted, Gift Osinya, cleared his KCSE at Nairobi’s Lenana School.
Many Kenyans still remembers vividly when terrorists attacked the Joy Jesus Repentance Church in Likoni, Mombasa County on the ill-fated Sunday of 23rd March, 2014 taking away the life of Mama Veronica Atieno and leaving a bullet lodged in the skull of her 18-month old son, life seemed hopeless for the two little boys she left behind.
“The heartbreaking picture of Gift Osinya carrying his injured younger brother, Baby Satrine Osinya, went viral, and I was deeply touched by the plight of the two little boys who had lost their mother in the most cruel way, as many Kenyans were.” Ex-Governor Mike Sonko said in a statement.
Together with others, he went into mobilising resources to facilitate the treatment of Baby Satrine.
“I offered to adopt the two young boys, and since then, I have witnessed God’s miracles unfold right before my eyes.” He revealed.
Adding that, “Gift and Satrine have been an immense blessing to me and my family ever since, and it’s been with great joy that we have watched the two grow into fine, young men with a promising future ahead of them.”
Thursday May 22 became yet a big day for Sonko’s family as the young man completed his KCSE.
“Today was again a moment of great joy and a big milestone for us as a family when Master Gift Osinya completed his KCSE at the Lenana School.” He said.
Mr. Sonko could not hide his joy over the many blessings he has received by adopting the two brothers.
“My son Gift, I am so proud of you, and truly grateful to God for the blessing you have been in our lives.” He revealed.
“I pray that the God of Daniel, Meshack and Abednego who saved your life, and that of your younger brother Satrine, will forever walk before you and with you at all times as you enter the next phase of your life as a young adult.” He added.
Mr. Sonko who has been having it rough with the government of the day after his impeachment as Nairobi Government poured his heart out for all those who have stood with his family in prayers.
“For all those who have been standing with us in prayer and words of encouragement, may the God of Jabez continue expanding your territories.” He said.
