Mike Sonko Ordered By State To Remove National Flag From His Vehicles

The state through Karanja Kibicho has ordered Nairobi City County governor Mike Sonko to stop flying the national flag in his official cars.
The flamboyant governor revealed the development in a Facebook post where he also announced that he was almost giving up on the job of governor of Nairobi City County.


Mike Sonko said he had been advised by Interior Principle Secretary Karanja Kibicho and Ndegwa to stop flying the flag and he will comply as advised.
The National Flags, Emblems and Names Act states that a person shall only fly the national flag if permitted in a written letter by the interior ministry.
Individuals allowed to fly the national flag in their official vehicles are the president and his deputy, cabinet secretaries, speakers of the National Assembly and the Senate, the Chief Justice and Kenyan diplomats in foreign countries.
Governors may fly the flags of their respective counties. There was an intense debate after the 2013 elections on whether the governors should fly the national flag but the national government finally had its way.
Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior introduced a bill in parliament that if passed and signed will allow any Kenyan citizen to fly the national flag in their vehicles, bikes and any other transport means as they deem fit.
