Court of Appeal Dismisses Sonko’s Bid to Stop Kananu's Swearing-in as Governor

Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s application to have the city’s Deputy Governor Anne Kananu Mwenda barred from assuming the top job at City Hall has been dismissed by the Appelate Court, paving for the latter’s swearing in.  

Sonko moved to court in June 2021 to petition Mwenda from assuming office after he was impeached by the senate in December 2020. Sonko filed a petition against Mwenda to ensure she didn’t take up Nairobi County's gubernatorial office until his initial appeal was determined.

"Sonko is troubled that should Mwenda become Governor of Nairobi County, then, at that point, his allure would be delivered trifling; and that regardless of whether he was to succeed and the Court was to find that his reprimand was inappropriate, then, at that point, it would imply that he would not have the option to get back to his previous position," official reports read.

Sonko likewise contended that his allure is one that is important to people in general since he was chosen by citizens in Nairobi County.
