Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has dismissed threats of his impeachment saying that he will not be the first governor to face the sack and will appeal any attempt.

The governor, who is under fire politically and from Nairobians angry at him over the poor state of the capital refuted claims that he nominated Miguna Miguna to cushion himself from impeachment.

“There is a process, if I am impeached at the Assembly, the motion goes to Senate, High Court, Court of Appeal and finally the Supreme Court, I have nothing to fear,” he said during an interview with a local TV station.

“I chose Miguna Miguna because I know him for fighting cartels, calls hims anti-cartel number one, the person fighting me is a cartel and we need to dismantle all these cartels.”

Sonko says he has forgiven Miguna even though he called him a drug baron and one of the city’s cartel “in the spirit of the handshake.”

A defiant Sonko says Jubilee vice chairperson David Murathe is the man behind the push to have him impeached adding that he will not bow down to him.

“I don’t want to fight with someone who thinks he is god. The problems I am facing are because of one person,” he said.

“It is not a losing battle, MCAs, I have good relationships, they have a right of doing oversight over me and if I go wrong somewhere, I accept my mistakes and we move on together. But that does not amount for my impeachment, that is very wrong.”
