Good News To Sonko As Court Declines Request To Bar IEBC From Clearing Him

Recently a petition was filed by a lawsuit attempting to bar Mike Sonko from running for Mombasa governor. Sonko was awarded a ticket by wiper party to run for Mombasa's gubernatorial seat. However the lawsuit were alleging that since sonko was removed from Nairobi governorship, he's unfit to run for office.

"I have considered this matter carefully. The court is aware of like matters filed in the High Court in Mombasa and in Eldoret. There is also an expanded Bench to be empanelled by the Chief Justice. As a result, it is only prudent that this matter be forwarded to the Chief Justice for purposes of empanelment so as to have prudent use of the limited judicial time," Justice Mrima told the court.

Wiper had already planned to replace sonko but now it's good news to them that he'll be cleared. He's the leading candidate followed by ODM Mvita MP Abdulswamad Shariff Nassir.
