Governor Mike Sonko has on Monday denied graft allegation charges as he appeared before the Milimani Law courts.
It was a quiet affair as the Governor was brought in from the Integrity Centre to answer to graft charges totaling to Ksh 357 million.
Appearing before Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti, the prosecution team called on the court to deny the Governor bail as describing him as a flight risk.
