HIGH COURT NOW STOPS NAIROBI ABLE GOVERNOR MIKE MBUVI SONKO IMPEACHMENT MOTION.
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has received a temporary relief after the High Court on Monday stopped an impeachment motion against him.
The motion filed by Makongeni Member of County Assembly Peter Imwatok was set to come up for debate in the county assembly on Tuesday, March 3.
However, justice Byrum Ongaya ruled that the motion shall not proceed until its filed in compliance with the Standing Orders of the County Assembly.
“The proposed motion by the MCA for the proposed impeachment as scheduled for Tuesday shall not proceed until due compliance of the standing order number 67 is complied with,” ruled the judge.
Governor Sonko’s lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui welcomed the ruling saying: “the county assembly clerk has personally admitted that he has not received the motion or even verified the signatures.”
