The former county boss had been invited to appear before IPOA on December 21. He is however yet to show up.

On the material day, the besieged governor was briefly detained after police stormed his meeting with ward representatives opposed to his ouster.

Police fired teargas to disperse the Members of County Assembly (MCAs) who were holding a meeting at Riverside. They accused the leaders of flouting Covid-19 rules.

Sonko is said to have been plotting with the MCAs on how to block his impeachment.

Despite all efforts, the Senate upheld his ouster.
