On Thursday, June 24, 2021, a three-judge bench High Court ruling upheld the Nairobi County Assembly and Senate’s decision to impeach Mike Mbuvi Sonko from the Nairobi Governor seat. This was after the former governor moved to the court seeking to reverse the ruling which he claimed was un-procedural and unconstitutional. He added that it was influenced by outside sources, mentioning the President as one.

The trio, which consisted of justices Juma Chitembwe, Wilfrida Okwany and Weldon Korir argued that the two petitions lacked merit and hence dismissed them. They further stated there were no external forces that could have influenced the ruling.
