The former Nairobi governor, Mike Mbuvi Sonko was early on presented by the Wiper party to contest for Mombasa gubernatorial seat. However, since he has been facing political huddles such that the High Court told IEBC not to process and clear him for his Mombasa governorship bid, following the petitions filed against him. For that matter, the Wiper Democratic Party has vowed to present another candidate for the Mombasa gubernatorial position.
The former Nairobi governor has therefore, made remarks and allegations against DPP Noordin Haji and Chief Justice Martha Koome for interfering with his high court case. For instance, Ms. Koome stated while referring to Sonko that, those convicted for criminal offences cannot hold or run for a public office.
Therefore, Mr. Sonko has assured his petitioners that, another person will take over him if IEBC still bars him from contesting. According to Sonko, Mombasa residents should not worry as the Wiper Party have an alternative plan to pick his replacement in the Mombasa gubernatorial race, despite threats and court orders, so that Mombasa can have credible and fresh leadership in the upcoming August 9th polls.
