Divine Sisters women Group who are seeking to be enjoined in a suit seeking to remove Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko filed by lawyer Boniface Nyamu speaking to media outside Milimani Law Court building.

BY NT CORRESPONDENT.

A group of women want to be enjoined in a case filed by lawyer Boniface Nyamu, who has sought the removal of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

In the application, Divine Sisters Group want to join the case as an interested party arguing that they have legitimate interest in the case. They want to be given an opportunity to respond to various allegations raised by Nyamu.

They argue that if the petition is determined in favour of the applicant, the move will grossly prejudice the interest of women in Nairobi County.

The group says that the petition is filed in bad faith and out of malice and an abuse of the court process. They said the move will stagnate all the ongoing women projects initiated by Governor Sonko.

Mr Nyamu, a Nairobi lawyer filed a petition in court seeking to have Sonko declared unfit to hold office.

In his petition, Mr Nyamu has cited several grounds for Sonko’s removal among them the recent ban on matatus from the Central Business District.

He has also accused the governor of verbally assaulting an MCA, recording private phone calls and refusing to nominate a deputy governor.

“When we were electing the Governor, we elected him alongside his deputy governor in consideration that they would complement each other in terms of politics and development but immediately the respondent was sworn in, he started frustrating his deputy until the Deputy Governor resigned,” argues the lawyer.

The lawyer alleges that ever since Sonko was elected, he has “reneged on all his promises and is totally clueless on what is happening in the city.”

He wants the court to bar the governor from transacting any county business until the case is heard and determined.
