The High Court has upheld the impeachment of Mike Sonko as Nairobi Governor by Nairobi County Assembly and the Senate.

The 138-page ruling was delivered by a three-judge bench presided over by Justice Said Chitembwe and assisted by Justices Wilfrida Okwany and Weldon Korir.

Sonko was sent packing from office in December 2020 after 88 Members of County Assembly (MCAs) supported a motion accusing the governor of violating the Constitution, abuse of office and gross misconduct with only two voting against it.
