Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko has written to the Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji, stating that he was within the law when he nominated Anne Kananu Mwenda as his deputy governor.
The embattled county chief insisted that his actions did in no way violate his bail term.
Sonko argued that his suspension from office does not mean that he cannot perform his duties as the county boss.
“We wish to note that the court in its bail ruling did not bar our client from exercising the constitutional functions of his office. Our client is bound to perform those actions which do not require him to access the office and which can only be done by him,” reads the letter in part.
Sonko also accused the DPP of subjudice for discussing a pending court case on social; media.
On Monday, Sonko nominated Anne Kananu Mwenda as his deputy in a move, to ensure the stability of Nairobi County since he is barred from accessing the City Hall office.
