Scheme to remove Sonko takes shape


They said the corruption case the governor is facing in court and other cases the anti-graft agencies are pursuing amount to abuse of power and gross misconduct.

The EACC is investigating the governor over irregular payment of Sh196 million for the construction of Dandora stadium.

The DCI has separately launched a probe into suspicious multi-billion-shilling tenders in Sonko’s administration.

They include payments made to AAR Insurance Kenya, the refurbishment of Pumwani Maternity Hospital and casual workers.

Several sources have disclosed that the MCAs have been holdings meetings, including with top Jubilee officials and State House operatives, to plan the ouster.

“We have held a meeting in a hotel in Kiambu, another one in Upper Hill and the latest one at the party headquarters. The county is sinking and we cannot sit and watch,” a Jubilee MCA said off record.

A source revealed that a group of Harambee House officials have been working with some MCAs and Speaker Elachi’s office to come up with a plan.

“The plan must be free of legal landmines. It must also protect the MCAs from the repercussions of the county being dissolved and thus necessitating them to seek re-election in a by-election,” one source said.

The Harambee House group is said to be working closely with the State Law Office in exploring the available options.

“So far, the best option is the impeachment of the governor and I can tell you that this is something you will see happening very soon,” a top official at OP said.

Several MCAs from both Jubilee and Nasa confirmed the impeachment plot, saying it was mooted soon after the governor was arrested and charged with several counts of corruption and abuse of office.

Yesterday, Mberia intimated that both camps – Jubilee and Nasa – have agreed to remove the governor from office, a matter he said they are undertaking in the interest of the city residents.

“I can assure that even from the other end [Jubilee], we are really in agreement that [impeachment] is the end result,” he added.

Embakasi MCA Michael Ogada (ODM) will collect the requisite number of signatures and sponsor the ouster motion.

“I have already started collecting the signatures and we will petition the speaker at the right time. We will impeach him. There are no two ways about it,” Ogada confirmed to the Star.
