The Anti-Corruption Court has rejected Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s plea to stop prosecution into Ksh 357 graft charges leveled against him.
In a petition filed by the Governor, he claimed the Ethics and Anti-Corruption (EACC) detectives illegally obtained documents to prosecute him.
He continued by questioning EACC credibility following allegations of corruption against Director Ali Mohamud.

Governor Mike Sonko claimed Mr. Mohamed was responsible for the sale Integrity Centre and various plots within Nairobi County.
He called for proper scrutiny and clearance of the director before prosecuting him.
The controversial governor was granted a Ksh 15 million cash bail.
The news comes barely hours after lion sculptures outside City Hall were carried away.
On Tuesday night unknown people are said to have burnt and defaced them.
This follows the handing over of the functions of the County Government to the National Government at State House.
