Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko Impeached

Mike Sonko: 88 out of 122 MCAs, on Thursday, December 3, voted to support the motion achieving the two-thirds majority (82) required by the constitution.

He was impeached over allegations of gross misconduct and abuse of office.

Sonko had earlier flown at least 38 MCAs to Kwale in a bid to counter the impeachment motion.

The county boss had a strategy to ensure more than a third of all Nairobi MCAs were out of Nairobi which would have effectively denied the impeachment the two-thirds majority needed to pass. 

The plan, however, fell apart after Nairobi County speaker Benson Mutura called for voting to be conducted through a video link so that all MCAs would participate.

Shortly after, MCAs allied to the governor rushed to the Kwale Police Station to report that their accounts on the video link platform had been hacked.
