Court Delivers Last Blow on Mike Sonko's Governorship, Paves Way For DG Ann Kananu's Swearing

Former Nairobi governor ,Mike Mbuvi Sonko has today received a major blow after the Court of Appeal ruled that he has ceased to be the governor since he has been out of office for more than ten months. The former county boss has been in and out of courts trying to prove that he was not ousted legally.

The ruling paves way for the swearing in of the deputy governor to become the county boss for the remaining duration. The DG, Ann Kananu will then have the opportunity to appoint the deputy governor of her choice once she assumes the role of the governor.
