In Summary

  • Those privy to the developments say Sonko is expected to name a deputy with a potential candidate’s name having been floated.
  • Should he ignore the counsel, the stage is set for a by-election resulting from an impeachment motion or suspension of the county.

With beleaguered Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s fate hanging in the balance as he faces court today, wheels of his succession have already been set in motion.

And, as Kenyatta National Hospital confirmed that Sonko was admitted at the facility Tuesday morning, the Nation has learnt that there are intricate plans to spare the county a leadership crisis as Sonko is expected to step aside and face his accusers in court.

IMPEACHMENT

Those privy to the developments say Sonko is expected to name a deputy with a potential candidate’s name having been floated.

Should he ignore the counsel, then the stage is set for a by-election resulting from an impeachment motion or suspension of the county.

The Nation learned the name of a potential deputy governor has been floated to Sonko to consider appointing for the position that has been vacant since Mr Polycarp Igathe resigned in January last year
