SUPREME COURT TEMPORARILY HALTS KANANU SWEARING IN
The Supreme Court temporarily relieves Sonko as it halts the swearing-in process of Ann Kananu set to take place today.
The Supreme court has, on Monday the 25th, temporarily halted the swearing-in of Ann Kananu as the next Nairobi Governor. The developments emerged after the Court of Appeal failed to acknowledge Sonko’s application last week, intending to stop the process.
They then forced the former governor to rush to the Supreme court last Friday to challenge this judgement, citing his impeachment as illegal and an abuse of his right to serve the full gubernatorial term.
Justice Mohammed Ibrahim certified the application filed by Mike Sonko and subsequently issued an order barring the Assumption of office of the county, Nairobi City County and the governor committee from swearing in the deputy governor.

The order will be in place for the next 14 days, pending a hearing where Sonko will have a fair chance to defend his position.
