What you need to know:

  • Prosecutors claim Mr Sonko might interfere with, intimidate and coerce witnesses who are under his executive control, adding that this will undermine the integrity of his trial.

  • Mr Riungu said Mr Sonko has breached his bail terms, warranting urgent court intervention pending the hearing and determination of the case.

  • Mr Sonko nominated Ms Anne Kananu Mwenda, the Disaster Management and Coordination chief officer, as his deputy and forwarded her name to Speaker Beatrice Elachi.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko could be returned to remand prison following the public prosecutor’s request to have his bond cancelled.
