Embattled and corrupt Nairobi County Governor Mike Mbuvi Kioko alias Sonko has been impeached.
Eighty-eight members of the County Assembly (MCAs) voted to oust the governor who has been facing corruption charges against him.
Only two MCAs, among those who were in the Assembly, voted against the motion.
At least 82 MCAs were required to support the motion for it to achieve the required two-thirds threshold.
Sonko has been impeached on grounds of abuse of office, gross misconduct as well as lack of capability to run county affairs, accusations that he has repeatedly denied.
Mike Sonko who was elected on a Jubilee party ticket in 2017 is not the first to face such a motion. Embu County Govoernor Wambora has faced but won against such moves.
The corrupt Kirinyanga Governor Anne Waiguru also survived thanks to Senate siding with her.
Kiambu second Governor Ferdinand Waititu was successfully removed from office in January 2020.
The semi-literate governor has cried wolf over impersonation of MCAs emails in the vote that was largely taken virtually.
