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.
