Nairobi County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko is expected in court today (Wednesday) to answer to assault charges.
Sonko will appear in a Voi Court to face three counts among them resisting police arrest and disorderly conduct.
He is accused of battling police officers when he was arrested at a Voi road block on December 6.
In the Voi case, police said they have served court summons to the governor to appear in court on Wednesday to answer charges of assaulting Coast Regional Police Commander Rashid Yakub by kicking him on the thigh and insulting others during his dramatic arrest.
The governor is accused of being unruly, abusive and violent in an attempt to resist arrest thereby obstructing police officers from the lawful execution of their duties.
The embattled governor was last week charged with several counts of graft and released on a cash bail of Ksh.15 million bail but blocked from accessing his office, this setting off a chain reaction within Nairobi County which remains without a leader.
A planned impeachment motion against the governor has been shelved with both the governor and the Nairobi MCAs awaiting a ruling on Friday that will determine whether Sonko can be allowed back in office.Do you have any story you would like to share?
