  • Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria on Tuesday, December 10, shared startling prediction of what he thought would befall embattled Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

    Speaking on NTV, the vocal legislator revealed that Sonko was bound to lose his elective post by March 2020.

    "I think we shall be looking at a by-election in Nairobi by April or March," he stated.

    He went on to explain how Sonko's decision not to appoint a deputy governor was bound to be his major undoing, as it could force President Uhuru Kenyatta to suspend the county government.

    Kuria argued that if a power vacuum arose and Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi's 60-day mandated interim reign elapsed, the county would be dissolved.

    According to the Constitution of Kenya, Chapter 11, Part Six, the president has the right to suspend an entire county if the need arises.

    "The president may suspend a county government in an emergency arising out of internal conflict or war
    or in any other exceptional circumstances," reads an excerpt from the law.

    He went on to allege that the Sonko's prosecution was politically orchestrated to create another 'bedroom' scenario to be used by warring political factions to determine who was superior.

    When pushed to disclose the identity of the people he claimed were looking to create a by-election scenario, he simply referred to them as the handshakers.

    Kuria stated that Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin haji, was out of line, following the inhumane manner in which the governor was arrested

    "Sonko is still an innocent man. I think we are being conditioned to illegalities. The DPP has no right to warn in a press conference he can go to court," he spoke.
