A Voi Court has upheld Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko appeal to
appear in court by January 21, 2020.
Sonko was supposed to appear before the court to answer assault
charges, but his lawyers said the governor was unwell and needed bed rest
according to medical reports.
Senior Resident Magistrate Frederick Mayaka Nyakundi ruled that
Sonko be arraigned on January 21, 2020, adding that the Governor present
himself at the DCI headquarters in Voi before appearing in court.
Sonko was expected to answer three counts including
resisting police arrest and disorderly conduct.
The governor was charged with conspiracy to commit economic
crime, willful failure to comply with the law and conflict of interest.
