The Former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has had a troubled life in the recent months after he arrest,detention and imprisonment. The woes of Sonko are far from over as the former Nairobi county boss is facing a series of charges levelled against him. The embattled governor has been reckless in making defamatory claims against the government to sensetionalize the public and paint the President in bad light. The vocal and flamboyant leader has been behind bars waiting for determination of the many cases he faces. He has been hospitalized for a while now but the court has been demanding that he be presented before it. His lawyers have indicated that their client needs to be airlifted abroad for a hip surgery following complications he developed in the event of his arrest and detention.

Sonko has today had it it rough after the Anti-Corruption Court Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti declined an application by Sonko to recuse himself from hearing one of his graft case involving Ksh 14 million. Magistrate Ogoti has ruled today Thursday 4th March ruled that there is no evidence put before him that indicate he is has a personal bias in making a ruling on the case that may compromise Sonko's quest for justice. Ogoti's ruling comes against a backdrop where the court allowed an application by the Director of Public Prosecutions to call one more witness to testify against Sonko. In his ruling, Ogoti said, “The same way this court holds the party with respect is the same way the court demands respect from the parties.They must submit to the rule of law."
