Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko awed international delegates with his new-found American accent at the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference.
Speaking on Sunday night during the eventâ€™s delegates dinner at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), the Governor sounded keen to be eloquent leading to his adopted accent.
Sonko said Nairobi is a modern city that boasts of one of the best infrastructure in the East and Central Africa region that has made it a commercial hub.
â€œDue to the presence of many research centres, Nairobi continues to be a regional centre for innovative thinking and would play a catalyst part in creating a partnership role for the establishment of Sustainable Blue Economy Headquarters,â€ said Sonko.Â

In his speech, Sonko told the delegates that the cityâ€™s strategic location makes it ideal for the Blue Economy headquarters.
â€œI, therefore, challenge the organizers of Sustainable Blue Economy to seriously consider making Nairobi its International Headquarters,â€ he said.
He said Nairobi was ranked third innovative city in Africa among the top cities in the World renowned for its innovation, livability and capacity to re-invent itself.
Over 10,000 international delegates are attending the conference which kicked off Monday at KICC.Â
