Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has said that the party will stick to former Nairobi county governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko in the Mombasa race.
Despite legal landmine,Musyoka has admitted that his party will stick with embattled Sonko and has not indicated whether the party will replace Sonko as it's party flagbearer in the race to succeed Governor Hassan Joho.
Sonko was barred from vieng for the Mombasa seat by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) following his 2018 impeachment.The commission had also given Wiper 72 hours to replace him.The IEBC's resolution committee stood by th decision made by returning officer Yusuf Swalha to bar Sonko from contesting.
Sonko had appealed the IEBC's verdict and last week ,Chief Justice Martha Koome formed a three-judge bench to hear his appeal and determine his fate.Kalonzo says that he supports Sonko's vision for Mombasa.
The party therefore has no intention to replace the former Nairobi governor and has vowed to ensure that he is on the ballot and he succeed governor Joho.
