A team from the Nairobi County Assembly has Wednesday morning arrived at the Senate with pomp and colour as Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s impeachment trial begins.
The assembly entourage, led by Minority Leader Michael Ogada, the mover of the impeachment motion, has a team of five lawyers.
Mr Ndegwa Njiru, the lawyer who gained fame when he represented Kirinyaga County Assembly during the hearing of the impeachment against Governor Anne Waiguru in the Senate in June, will lead the assembly’s legal team.
Other members of the team include Majority Whip Paul Kados, Minority Whip Peter Imwatok and his deputy Moses Ogeto.
Governor Sonko also arrived at the Senate together with his team. He is facing four charges for his removal as governor. The charges include gross violation of the Constitution and other laws, abuse of office, commission of crimes under the national laws and lacking the mental capability to run the county government.
