Supreme court of Kenya yesterday ruled against the the appeal by former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko over his removal from office in 2020 through impeachment.
The court observed that Sonko was legally removed from office by falling short of chapter 6 of the constitution of Kenya by gross misconduct while in office.
The decision to bar Sonko from holding any political office in Kenya is a wake up call for any political leader in Kenya who is elected to serve in any constitutional office to uphold integrity while in office lest they find themselves in Sonko situation.
Sonko parte after parte style of leadership became a laughing stock to Kenyan voters on the type of leaders they choose to lead them,he was unable to deliver meaningful services to Nairobi people who had elected him enmasse.
He was accused of mismanagement and misappropriation of funds meant to deliver services to Nairobi electorates by even paying for her daughter ticket to fly to the United States of America in the company of other county officials,he was removed from office on the account of misconduct through a motion of impeachment.
Sonko was vying for Mombasa Gubarnatorial race on wiper ticket and had been cleared by iebc to run the race only for the supreme court to cut short his much hyped hopes yesterday by declaring him persona non Grata in political activities in Kenya.
This means Sonko will never participate in any political activities in Kenya for as long as his impeachment and subsequent removal from office is concerned,he will be indirectly engaging in political activities.
Mr Sonko who relocated to Mombasa recently had become so popular through his usual antics and was to pose a political challenge to the Azimio la umoja aspirant Suleiman shabbal .
The supreme court gave out seven pertinent reasons for disqualifying Sonko from political activities in Kenya.
