Nairobi County Assembly Minority Whip Peter Imwatok says the impeachment motion against Governor Mike Sonko will be the first thing the county assembly will deal with when they resume from recess.
“We know clearly that Maina Kamanda spoke loud and clear… It is very clear to all Kenyans that Nairobi has a problem which ought to be sorted out in the Kiambu style. And there is no shortcut,” said Imwatok.
“We are initiating the process of impeachment. We have to do a motion before the assembly which will be supported by 82 members and we already have those numbers.”
Nominated MP Maina Kamanda called on Nairobi MCAs to impeach Sonko, who is facing corruption charges he was speaking during the swearing in of James Nyoro as the new Kiambu Governor.
“We are telling Nairobi MCAs to take note of what their Kiambu counterparts have done. Let them (Nairobi MCAs) remove that thief in office and send him home or Shimo la Tewa,” said Kamanda.
“Tunawaambia MCAs wa Nairobi waangalie vile MCAs wa Kiambu wamefanya…”

Meanwhile, Nairobi County Assembly Majority Leader Charles Thuo has however dismissed the motion against Sonko, saying it has no support of Jubilee MCAs.
Nairobi MCAs, who went on recess on December 11, 2019, are expected back for normal sittings on February 11, 2020.
