Lawyer Miguna Weighs In On Takeover Of Nairobi

Forcefully exiled Lawyer and Kenyan Miguna Miguna has waded into the issue of the takeover of Nairobi County Government by the National Government.

“Article 187 of the Constitution does not authorize 2 individuals to sit in a room and TRANSFER functions from one level of Government to the other. It authorizes GOVERNMENTS to transfer functions LEGALLY through LEGISLATION via Parliament and the respective County Assembly”, Miguna wrote on Twitter.

Yesterevening, just after it was reported that Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Ms Beatrice Elachi had given corrupt Governor Mike Sonko a week to defend himself over allegations of corruption, the official twitter handle for statehouse announced that Sonko had handed over some functions of Nairobi County to Uhuru Kenyatta.

What It Means For Sonko To Transfer Functions To Uhuru

 

Varied opinions were shared on social media, most of which were from non-lawyers sharing the screenshots of Article 187 of the constitution that speaks about the transfer of power between levels of government.

“This is a coup d’é·tat. Despot Uhuru Kenyatta has subverted the Constitution, disobeyed numerous court orders, presided over an unprecedented level of plunder, abuse of power and brutalization of Kenyans. Patriots must stop him from turning Kenya into a Kenyatta Slave Estate”, Miguna stated

Why Mike Sonko Surrendered Nairobi County To Uhuru

 

He continued, “Despot Uhuru Kenyatta has no power to take over Nairobi County. He has perpetrated a coup d’état: an illegal overthrow of a constitutional order. This act is not just againstMikeSonko’s profligate administration. It is a violent assault on the Constitution, which we must resist”. First, Despot Uhuru Kenyatta is NOT the Government of Kenya or the Republic of Kenya. Second Mike Sonko is not the Nairobi County or Nairobi County Government. They are two individuals with no power to TRANSFER FUNCTIONS. What has happened is both unconstitutional and illegal. “Article 187 of the Constitution does not authorize 2 individuals to sit in a room and TRANSFER functions from one level of Government to the other. It authorizes GOVERNMENTS to transfer functions LEGALLY through LEGISLATION via Parliament and the respective County Assembly”. What Despot Uhuru Kenyatta has just perpetrated is a fraud on Kenyans and a coup on the Constitutional order.
