Big Blow To Nairobi's Former Governor Mike Sonko As Court Dismiss His Appeal As Ann Is Set To Be Sworn In

Ann Kanunu is set tobe sworn in as the Nairobi's first female governor after the court through a three judge bench dismissed the former governor for Nairobi county Mike Sonko's appeal.

Mike Sonko was removed from office by the senate due to gross misconduct in the office of governor late last year. He was first impeached by members of the county assembly of whom 88 votes yes for his impeachment and in the Senate, over 27 senators voted in support of his impeachment.

Ann Kanunu was the deputy governor and was set to hold the office of the governor upon the impeachment of the ex governor Mike Sonko. The court of appeal halted her swearing in as the new Nairobi governor after Mike Sonko held an appeal.

Ann Kanunu has shown her interest in the 2022 general elections governorship race as she wants to compete for the top seat in Nairobi county.
