Nairobi residents have now reason to smile after court of appealing ruling that Mike Mbuvi Sonko is no longer Nairobi governor. In their ruling appealate judges said Sonko has been out of office for ten months and because of that he seize to exist as governor of Nairobi. The court has now allowed governor Ann Kananu to be sworn in as a new governor of Nairobi.
"APPELLATE COURT rules that Sonko has been out of office for over 10 months and is no longer Nairobi Governor, paves way for Ann Kananu to be sworn in," read the report by Nation.
Mike Sonko was impeached early this year for gross misconduct, abuse of office and violation of kenyans constitution. He was later replaced by Ann Kananu as governor of Nairobi.
Ann Kananu will now officially become third governor of Nairobi City county. He is now fourth woman governor in the country. Others are governor Charity Ngilu of Kitui, Ann Waiguru of Kirinyaga and the late Joyce Laboso of Bomet county.
