ODM party leader Raila Odinga has asked Nairobi MCAs not to affix their signatures on governor Mike Sonko's impeachment. The ODM leader through the party Chairman said ODM will not be part of the removal of the Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

In a letter on Wednesday, the party's chairman George Aladwa said members should neither vote nor sign any proposal until they are further advised to.

"I have been directed by the party leader to advice Honorable Members that the party is not supporting the move," he said.

"We wish to make it clear that the Party and the Party Leader do not and will not interfere with the power granted directly by the people to Members of the County Assembly in the exercise of any of their functions including over-sighting the executive," he said.

In December last year, High Court gave an okay to Nairobi MCAs to impeach the embattled governor after it declined to stop his removal from office.
