A city lawyer has filed a petition in court seeking to have Nairobi Govornor Mike Mbuvi Sonko removed from office.
Lawyer Boniface Nyamu seeks to have the court declare and bar Sonko from holding the said office arguing that he is unfit to hold the said office.
He claims that Sonko assaulted an MCA, Records private phone calls and has declined to nominate a deputy governor .
Boniface Nyamu wants the Governor to pave way for fresh gubernatorial elections in Nairobi County.
He is seeking orders to restrain the city boss from transacting any business on behalf of the county government of Nairobi pending hearing and determination of the petition.
The petitioner claims that the governor has engaged in different acts of gross misconduct that are insulting to the people of Nairobi and violated the obligation conferred to him as the duly elected governor of Nairobi.
“The actions of the Governor have gravely and adversely affected the constitutional right and interest of the city residents who elected him,” says Nyamu.
He accuses the Governor of verbal assault and releasing to the public private conversations recorded.
It is his argument that ever since the Governor was elected, he has regenerated on all his promises and is totally clueless on what is happening and the city is now in deplorable condition despite being the prestigious city in East and Central Africa.
“Despite all the failures to perform his constitutional duties, the governor has been busy with ” side shows” and has repeatedly blamed his predecessor Evans Kidero and PS Karanja Kibicho over his inadequacies,” the lawyer argues.
According to Nyamu on 23 May, instead of Sonko steering clear off petty social media arguments and side shows so as to discharge his constitutional mandate, he engaged in an abusive exchange with Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi
