Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has moved to court to oppose the abuse of office charge after the Director of Public Prosecutions amended the graft charge facing the governor.
Sonko’s lawyers want the new abuse of office charge by DPP to be dropped since the new charge has been filed at the High Court.
The lawyers led by senior counsel Cecil Miller appeared before chief magistrate Douglas Ogoti.
In the amended charge sheet, it is alleged that in January last year, Sonko abused his office by improperly conferring a benefit to himself by demanding Sh10 million from Web Tribe Ltd through ROG Security Limited.
Others to be charged are ROG Security Limited, and its director Antony Otieno Ombok, alias Jamal.
