A Kenyan citizen who is opposed to Miguna Miguna becoming the next Deputy Governor of Nairobi has taken Sonko to Court for nominating the lawyer.
John Waigi Migwi, in an application filed under a certificate of urgency, claims that the self-styled NRM General does not qualify to be the deputy governor. He argues that Miguna Miguna is not a Kenyan citizen and is a member of an illegal group.
“The nominee does not meet the relevant qualifications for vetting and approval to fill the vacancy in the office of deputy governor as he, not a Kenyan citizen nor a member of Jubilee party on which Sonko was elected,” Migwi states.
He claims that “Miguna is a member of a proscribed group of the national resistance movement which is an illegal movement that works with opposition parties and antagonises policies of the Jubilee party.”
Migwi states that the Elections Act stipulates that a nominee for the position of deputy governor should not be affiliated to other parties other than those within the Jubilee coalition.
“Unless restrained, the county assembly shall proceed with the vetting process thus rendering this matter nugatory,” he said through his lawyers from the firm of Waithaka and Associates.
Migwi wants a court order issued suspending Miguna Miguna’s anticipated vetting process.
