In his defense, the former Governor noted that he has not been convicted of any offense thus IEBC should not block his quest to vie for the Nairobi governor’s seat.

- Sonko snubs IPOA invitation over alleged police harassment
- Mike Sonko: motion to impeach Nairobi Governor tabled
Waitutu joins several candidates eyeing for the Nairobi seat set for February following his dismissal by the Kiambu MCA’s followed by vote against him at the Senate.
Ethics and Anti-corruption court has in the past been quoted question the inergrity of leaders especially governors once impeached by the Senate.
The former Kiambu Governor notes foul play from IEBC and EACC of being the judge and making crucial decisions on such matters.
Mike Sonko was impeached by the Senate following a motion passed by the Nairobi MCA’s. His position was snapped by Benson Mutura who doubles up as the county speaker.
Sonko’s deputy could have stepped in to fill the void but due to the unavailability of one, the Speaker is next in line to succeed the seat on an acting capacity.
