Sonko impeachment gathers steam as MCAs move motion

What you need to know:

  • Minority Whip and Makongeni MCA Peter Imwatok, who moved the motion, also cited gross violation of the Constitution, incompetency and an inability to lead.
  • The MCAs further accused Sonko of being unable to control Nairobi's debts and clear pending bills, gross misconduct and bringing the office of the governor to disrepute.
  • Sonko was barred from office last December for investigations into loss of Sh357 million of the county's money.
  • The county has lacked a deputy governor since Polycarp Igathe resigned in January 2018, saying he had failed to earn the governor's trust.

Nairobi MCAs have formally begun the process of impeaching Governor Mike Sonko after months of toying up with the idea.
