Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been impeached.
This was after 88 MCAs voted in favour of the motion tabled by Michael Ogada.
“This is a business that has never been executed before in this house. We are here to execute our last mandate, our last resort,” Ogada said.
“We have consulted and we have tried. Mr .Speaker we have held meetings in your office together with the executive to try find solution on how we bring solutions to this county. But we have no other option but to execute our last mandate to impeach Governor Sonko.”
There were 58 members in the assembly while others signed in virtually.
Two ward representatives cited against the motion.
According to Sonko who is in Kwale with at least 57 MCAs claimed that the vote was rigged.
The embattled governor claimed that over 70 MCAs had filed complaints with the police “on impersonation of their emails by rogue assembly officials who want to interfere with online voting.”
