Sonko Finally Responds After Court Refused to Reinstate Him as Governor

In the ruling made on Friday October 22 the court declared that Acting Governor Anne Kananu should be sworn in as the new Nairobi county boss.

The Ex governor taking to his social media handles appealed to his supporters not to be worried as the matter is still in court and stated that there is still light at the end of the tunnel because he will lodge a complaint at the Court of Appeal. 

He added what the court directs must be respected and the only way to challenge such directives is through an appeal at a higher court.The court has decided that and we respect our Judiciary and for now that’s how things are and life and has to go on.

He also urged his fans to take advantage of the fact the President had lifted the curfew and have fun instead of worrying and dwelling on things that have already happened.

Besides he also wanted an order issued which would restrain any county official from taking the office pending the hearing and determination of his appeal. 

His sentiments came moments after the court threw out his petition seeking to bar deputy governor Anne Kananu from taking the oath of office and replace him.
