Nairobi county minority leader Michael Ogada tables a notice of motion for the impeachment of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Thursday.

Already 86 out of 122 MCA have appended their signatures to the motion, exceeding the threshold needed to table a notice of impeachment motion.

MCAs allied to Governor Mike Sonko says the scheme to impeach the Governor is because of refusal to assent the bill on the Sh37.5 billion 2020-21 budget.

They claim that impeachment agenda marred the two meetings held on Monday and Tuesday at Capital Hill.

The Tuesday meeting was attended by the county assembly leadership which, however, said the discussions were about the Building Bridges Initiative.

The house leadership comprises the speaker, deputy speaker, Majority and Minority leaders, deputy Majority and Minority leaders, Majority and Minority Chief Whips and their deputies.

In February, a court freed Sonko from impeachment after the accusations of an invocation of misdeeds, including abuse of office and financial mismanagement.

Sonko says he will not allow the NMS headed by Maj-Gen Mohamed Badi Sh27.1 billion, its share of the budget.

The fight between the two entities will halt implementation of projects in the Kenyan capital.
