Sonko 'nominates' Miguna for Nairobi Deputy Governor position - 9 months ago, 17 Maý 00:16
A letter doing rounds on social media purports that Governor Mike Sonko has nominated controversial lawyer-politician Miguna Miguna as the new Nairobi Deputy Governor.
In the letter to the Speaker of the county assembly Beatrice Elachi, Governor Sonko forwards Miguna’s name for vetting and approval.
“I hereby forward my nominee, Lawyer Miguna Miguna to undergo full vetting process and approval by the County Assembly for the position of Deputy Governor.
“The nominee meets all the requirements provided for in the Constitution, the Leadership and Integrity Act, the Elections Act and County Government Act,” reads the letter.
Speaking exclusively to Standard Digital, a lawyer close to Governor Sonko has dismissed the letter saying the signature is fake.
The lawyer, however, did not wish to be named.
Miguna postponed his return date saying the Immigration Department was yet to furnish him with a valid Kenyan passport as directed by the Court.
