Nairobi MCAs have begun a fresh process of removing from office beleaguered governor Mike Sonko.

This is after 86 MCAs appended their signatures on notice of impeachment Motion, against a threshold of 42 needed, paving the way for a second attempt at impeaching the governor.

Moving the Motion, Minority Leader Michael Ogada, put forward several grounds for the removal of Mr Sonko from office key among them gross violation of the Constitution, abuse of office, committing a crime under national and international law and lacking the physical and mental capability to run the county government.

Mr Ogada said he would table evidence to support the Motion next week Thursday.

“The time has come that as Nairobi MCAs, we have made a decision that we have to bite the bullet and make sure normalcy is brought back to the city,” said the Embakasi MCA.
