Nairobi MCAs have begun a fresh process of removing from office beleaguered Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.
This is after 86 MCAs appended their signatures on a notice of impeachment motion, against a threshold of 42 signatures needed, paving way for a second attempt at impeaching the governor.
Moving the motion, Minority Leader Michael Ogada, put forward a number of grounds for the removal of Mr Sonko from office, key among them gross violation of the Constitution, abuse of office, committing a crime under national and international law and lacking the physical and mental capability to run the county government.
Ogada said he will next week Thursday table evidence to support the grounds that he has put forward for the removal of the governor saying that Governor Sonko has failed to even perform the few functions that he has been left with.
“We will not keep on watching and waiting forever. We (Nairobi MCAs) have made a decision to bite the bullet and make sure normalcy is brought back to the city,” said the Embakasi MCA.
“The only thing we can do as MCAs is to send him (Sonko) home and the people to bring us another governor and then we move on. The residents must see services being delivered,” he added.
