Governor Sonko’s adopted son Baby Satrin Osinya is officially 8 years.
Mike Mbuvi has taken to Instagram to send out warm wishes to the little boy who they have grown to love as their own.
“Happy 8th birthday my Son @s._satrine_s_
What a coincidence, just last week we celebrated the birthday of your elder brother Gift Osinya who rescued you from a hail of Al-Shabaab militia-men bullets when you were just two years old. Unfortunately, the bullet that killed your biological mum was lodged into your head, but the devil is a liar you survived and you have excelled and continue to thrive in everything that you do. For the 6 years we have been together, you have brought laughter, hope and joy into our family. There’s nothing more exciting and satisfying than seeing you grow and turn into such an amazing, smart boy. As a family, you have been a blessing to us, you continue to amaze us and we will forever treasure the day you came into our lives. Happy 8th birthday my Son @s._satrine_s_.”
Sonko’s wife Primrose also sent a message that read;
“Dear Lord, one of the greatest gifts you have given me is the gift of my Dear Son, Thank you for his life🙏 I pray that you may watch over him each day, My Sweet Baby💋 May the Lord Jesus shine his light on you and shower you with blessings and grace as you u celebrate your 8th Birthday!🎂 Happy Birthday My Baby Satrine 😍💋.”
Baby Satrine Osinya hit headlines in 2014 following a terrorist attack at the Joy in Jesus International Ministry church in Likoni, Mombasa.
The attack killed three worshippers among them Satrine’s mother Veronica Osinya who died while shielding her son from the flying bullets.
The bullet that killed his mother was left lodged in Satrine’s head and a picture of his brother Gift holding his bloodied brother Satrine gripped the hearts of many Kenyans.
He underwent a delicate three-hour surgery at the Kenyatta National Hospital to remove the bullet and thereafter the Sonko’s adopted Satrine and his brother Gift.
Gift is now a student at Lenana School while his brother attends Saint Mary’s school.
He also celebrated his birthday this month.
