  • A City resident has drafted a petition seeking to have Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko‘s government suspended. 

    The petition is addressed to President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Clerk of the Senate and is dated September 10, 2018. 

    The petitioner, chairman of Muthurwa Residents Association Welfare Patrick Kamotho Githinji, argues that Sonko’s administration ought to be dissolved on grounds that it has failed to deliver services.

    In the draft, Githinji blames internal conflicts on what he termed as a slow down on the city’s development.

    Kamotho adds that the suspension of the City Government would protect residents from losing millions of monies thorough double funding and ghost projects.

    Article 192 of the Constitution stipulates that the President may suspend a county government on two grounds; first, in an emergency arising out of internal conflict or war, second, in any other exceptional circumstances.

    The law states that a county government shall also not be suspended unless an independent commission of inquiry has investigated allegations against it and the President is satisfied that the allegations are justified and the Senate has authorised the suspension.

    The Senate has the powers to terminate the suspension.

    Sonko has in the past few months been running the county’s affairs from his Mua Hills home, Machakos attracting criticism.

    The petition comes at a time when City Hall is locked in controversy after angry MCAS stormed Speaker Beatrice Elachi’s office to evict her.
