Drama erupted at a top restaurant along Ngong Road after angry youth stormed the premises as blogger Andrew Kibe was interviewing former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko.

In a video shared on social media, Sonko could be seen calming down the angry mob, which wanted to confront Kibe over his previous fallout with the former governor.

Kibe was hosting Sonko at the restaurant along Ngong Road when the group of youths, suspected to be from Kibra, stormed the location demanding Kibe’s ejection.

The rowdy youth, who had seen the interview on Sonko’s social media accounts, were persuaded to retreat by Sonko.

The incident, which disrupted the interview, almost turned violent when one of the youths openly threatened to harm Kibe over his controversial remarks on trending issues.

During the interview, Sonko revealed that he is currently jobless and has taken a low profile ever since leaving politics.

Last year, Sonko and Kibe had a social media feud after the former governor urged Kibe to refrain from mentioning his name on his YouTube show and invading his private life.

Sonko expressed frustration over Kibe’s alleged attacks on Kenyan celebrities, particularly women.

In retaliation, Kibe shared a video criticizing Sonko, calling him a loser and advising him to humble himself.

However, during the recent interview, the two seemed to have buried their differences, sharing drinks and jokes, which were streamed live on Sonko’s Twitter account.
