Flamboyant Mike Sonko Officially Goes Broke, He Can’t Even Afford A Simple Meal

Former Nairobi Governor, Mike Mbuvi Sonko, is now coming to reality after his taps ran dry following his impeachment. In an application filed at the High Court, Sonko claimed that he had gone broke and he is unable to cater for his needs including paying fees for his children.

Sonko wants the court to release the Ksh15 million he deposited as cash bail in a graft case to substitute it with other assets as security to save him from a financial meltdown.

“I am asking the court to be allowed to deposit security in place of the cash bail to enable me access the money for purposes of attending to my health, paying school fees for my young ones, pay my lawyers and cater for my daily needs and those of my family,” said Sonko.

He further argued that he has no other source of income and that since his accounts were frozen, he has had very hard time of taking care of his family.

The former governor has, however, assembled three high-end vehicles worth Ksh30.4 million which he is willing to surrender to court so that he can have the Ksh15 million cash bail back.
