Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been impeached.
This is after 88 Nairobi Members of County Assembly voted in favour of a motion seeking to oust the Governor from office.
At least 82 MCAs were required to support the motion for it to achieve the required two thirds threshold.
Sonko has been impeached on grounds of abuse of office, gross misconduct as well as lack of capability to run county affairs, accusations that he has repeatedly denied.
The Governor’s fate now lies in the hands of the Senate
