The ruling was delivered on Friday where the court said that so no had been out of the county leadership for more than ten months since his impeachment.
Sonko had moved to the Court of Appeal where he had argued that the swearing of Anne Kananu Mwenda was against the law and that they had not given him sufficient time to present his defence.
Through lawyer Wilfred Nyamu, the former governor and the activist told the court that if Ms Kananu's swearing-in is not stopped, the appeal will be rendered nugatory, be overtaken by events and only serve an academic purpose.
In the appeal, Mr Nyamu said the High Court erred in dismissing the petitions as it failed to consider wholly various laws related to the removal of a governor from office and fair administrative action.
A three-judge bench of the High Court had ruled that the County Assembly and the Senate followed the law in their removal of Sonko from office and that he was accorded a fair hearing, declaring the process as Constitutional.
“We do not find any external hand in the impeachment of Sonko… The impeachment of Sonko fully complied with the constitution and statutory requirements. We therefore find the two petitions lack merit and are hereby dismissed,” ruled the court.
