“There was an allegation that the President of the Republic of Kenya was behind the impeachment of hon Sonko… We do not see any external hand in the impeachment of Sonko…We find no merit that the impeachment of hon Sonko was instigated or engineered by other reasons other than those instigated by article 181 of the constitution.”

“The impeachment of Hon Sonko fully complied with the constitution and the statutory requirements. We find that the two petitions lack merit and are hereby dismissed,” the judges ruled.

“The governor is only a nominating authority, not an approving authority. Mike Sonko could not unilaterally withdraw the nomination without the approval or consent of the County Assembly.”
