Former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has finally come clean on his encounter with the notorious wash wash cartel.
Wash wash business involves fake gold scams, money printing and several other dubious deals involving billions of shillings.
Sonko took to Facebook to narrate how fraudsters who engage in the wash wash business severally pleaded with him to join them.
The former Nairobi governor who is known for his flamboyance said the cartel promised him easy money which was quite tempting to him.
Sonko however declined the offer to join the wash wash cartel. He explained in detail the dangers of engaging in such illegal activities strongly warning the youth against ‘get-rich-quick’ schemes.
Below is Sonko’s post:
Let me share this…To our young men, under 30. Look my dear brothers fortunes and success in life are as result of hardwork. If you by any chance angukia and become rich you have cheated in life, and most definitely you will fall back to zero. The best diamond passes through hot fire.
Hizi deals za usiku kucha and you start spinning Porche Panama which you can’t tell how you earned it, will dig you an early grave.
The sweetest success has a story. You start a business, tried and failed, tried and failed, tried and failed and so on and so on until business it teaches you enough money lessons.
Life has no short cut, that’s why our fathers drove cars at 40s and 50s. Life experiences has no short cuts, that why it took our fathers years to finish the house we were brought up in.
Marriage has no shortcuts, you have to face challenges, you build it up trough those challenges. Nothing is easy to earn, and if you woke up a millionaire, just know you will not overstay on top.
This Wash wash businesses will give you a one hit wonder, or a one minute millionaire. And we can tell with excitement you have, you are not built to last.
I have been approached many times, oooh bro with your brains you can do very well. Oooh, you just need to dress smart and nail a deal and walk out a rich man. Oooh, I will give you a good car bora deal ivavane, nonsense let me work hard for my money. Let me cry when I fail, let me scratch the ground hard enough.
If God want that for me, acha niangukie kaproject kapesa mzuri, that one I will have work hard trough my experience. Lakini hii, tupatane B club nikuonyeshane na mabig fish, you are wasting your time, I am not coming.
There two things to understand in this businesses, one you can’t cheat on big fish, and if you do they will not have a second thought pulling that trigger.
Two, you can’t outsmart them, you can’t tell of their secret businesses, they watch your life more than your mother watches you. What a life you have money but nowhere to spend because you been watched. If not by them, the DCI is tracing your steps.
Achani haraka yakuwa mabundesko, your time will come, watch your wealth grow, and you will enjoy without anyone watch.
