Together with other county officers at the time, were taken to court by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission and he was found not guilty a few weeks back.
However, the EACC vowed to appeal the case at the Appellate Court and this morning, he might have gotten a reprieve as per the reports that we have with us.
Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has this morning been acquitted in the 20 million shillings graft case.

This means that the Former Governor is free of the 20 million shillings graft case that he was charged with.
Let us know your thoughts and opinions on this latest development in the comments section below this article.
