Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has tabled a motion seeking to withdraw assault charges against Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
This is after Coast regional commander Rashid Yakub filed application to drop assault case against the county chief at the Voi Law Court.
The Voi court will now decide Sonko’s fate tomorrow (Wednesday) after the complainant, the Coast Regional Police Commander opted to withdraw case.
Sonko was on December 6, 2019 accused of assaulting the police boss contrary to section 103 of the National Police Service Act 2011, at the Ikanga airstrip during his arrest.
He was supposed to appear before senior resident magistrate Fredrick Nyakundi on December 18 but could not because he was unwell.
This happened during his dramatic arrest after DPP Haji issued orders of his arrest over graft case involving loss of Ksh 357 million at City Hall.
