In summary

The High Court on Monday barred Nairobi County Assembly from vetting deputy governor nominee Anne Mwenda.

Justice Mumbi Ngugi issued the order after the petitioner Peter Agoro argued that nomination of Mwenda was in contrary to the high court ruling that barred Governor Mike Sonko from accessing his office.

Anti-Corruption Court Magistrate Douglas Ogoti had barred Sonko from accessing county offices unless accompanied by an investigating officer.

The court, while ruling on his bail term, also barred Sonko from approaching any witnesses.

This was after the county chief denied graft charges amounting to Sh357 million.
