Sonko Pens Emotional Message To Daughter As She Moves To London For Studies
Mike Sonko, the former governor of Nairobi and philanthropist, is both proud and sad as his youngest daughter, Sandra Mbuvi, leaves home to study in London.
In a heartwarming Instagram post, Sonko shared a montage of photos and videos of his family accompanying Sandra to the airport. He wrote that he was happy for her to embark on this exciting journey, but also sad to see her go.
“Dear daughter, I want you to know how proud I am of the adventurous spirit within you. Watching you spread your wings and embark on this exciting journey to study abroad fills me with happiness for all the opportunities and experiences that await you,” he wrote.
Sonko also expressed his sadness at the thought of having an empty house without Sandra and his wife, Primrose, who will be with her in London for four months.
“Yet, at the same time, a part of me feels a profound sadness, realizing how much I’ll miss your presence, our daily conversations, and the warmth of your smile,” he wrote.
Sandra also shared a photo of herself and her father embracing, writing, “Not the two of us crying.” She also shared a video of herself posing with her parents and younger brother, Satrine, who was crying at the airport.
Sonko’s post is a reminder of the mixed emotions that parents feel when their children leave home to start their own lives. It is a time of both joy and sorrow, as parents are proud of their children for growing up and becoming independent, but also miss their presence dearly.
