Nairobi’s ex Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko seems to have received an early new years relief, this is after a Nairobi Court this afternoon temporarily suspended the upcoming Nairobi governor by-election scheduled for next month.
In his ruling, Justice Anthony Mrima suspended the special Gazette notice issued by IEBC calling for a by-election in February.
Recently impeached, Governor Mike Sonko moved to court challenging the process, claiming that due process was not followed.
Senators upheld Sonko’s impeachment on December 17 after MCAs impeached him on December 3. Sonko had earlier. complained of irregularities during the virtual voting by MCA’s.
