Uhuru Summons Nairobi MCAs Ahead Of Sonko's Impeachment Motion

President Uhuru Kenyatta has summoned 66 Nairobi MCAs who were elected or nominated through the Jubilee Party to State House on Saturday.

Speaking to Daily Updates, the majority chief whip in Nairobi City County Assembly June Ndegwa confirmed having received the invitation and forwarded it all the concerned members of county assembly.

June Ndegwa asked the members of the county assembly to be seated in State House by 8.45am for the meeting.

This meeting is coming a few days after Mike Sonko pulled a surprise move and handed over some of the most critical functions of his government to the national government in a ceremony witnessed by Uhuru Kenyatta, the attorney general and the speaker of the Senate Ken Lusaka.

The county assembly of Nairobi City County is deeply divided especially on the issue of Sonko impeachment.

While some of the members have vowed that the governor will not be sent home under their watch, others sent out a warning that no external forces will make them change their mind about impeaching Sonko.

Mike Sonko who is facing corruption charges in court has been meeting members of the county assembly across the political divide in his Upperhill offices. The agenda of these meetings has been how to defeat the impeachment motion.

It remains to be seen whether all the 66 MCAs will honor the summons by the president or stay put.
