The senate was today taken through a circus of disturbing video and audio evidence of Nairobi County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko during his impeachment.
The video and audio clips were played by the Nairobi County Assembly lawyer Ndegwa Njiru showed the governor using abusive language on women and his fellow leaders.
The clips baffled some senators who some oint demanded that they be played on camera.
Earlier today attempts by Sonko’s lawyers Harrison Kinyajui to have the process stopped hit a dead end.
According to Kinyanjui the governor was not served with evidence three days before as required by the law.
“The governor did not receive evidence three days before as required by standing orders number 72. We have also stated that Hon Imwatok did not withdraw impeachment case and this means that you’re subjecting the governor in two similar processes violating his rights,” Kinyanjui said.
The speaker later ruled out the same saying the senate was an independent body.
“We shall allow you to summon only three witnesses excluding the governor and Commissioner of Prisons and for the matters of court we shall not indulge into that,” he said.
The witness Michael Ogada who is also the motion mover in a well orchestrated illustrated how the governor diverted public funds to pay his lawyers.
“The governor on July 2019 diverted Ksh. 297 Million bursary funds and paid lawyers at the expense of poor children. We have bank statements,” Ogada told senators.
