Sonko Rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been rushed to the Kenyatta National Hospital after falling ill on Monday night.
During court proceedings on Monday, his lawyers had sought to have him released on bail on grounds that he needed urgent medical attention.
His defence team, led by Cecil Miller, argued before that the embattled governor was sick and required medical attention after being roughed up by security personnel who arrested him in Voi last Friday.
“Due to the urgency of the medical treatment of accused one (Mike Sonko), though disputed, it’s ordered that his admission to hospital will be certified by the prisons medical centre in the presence of his physician in order to be escorted to any other hospital for his medical attention as soon as that can be arranged,” he said
Sonko was last evening treated at Kamiti Prison but a decision was made to transfer him to Kenyatta National Hospital.
