The ruling came just days after Sonko appealed the IEBC’s decision to bar him from running for Governor of Mombasa. He said that the commission had cleared other impeached lawmakers but chose to disqualify him.

The former Nairobi governor maintained that he had an active appeal for his impeachment and was allowed by the constitution to vie for an elective seat.

“When I was impeached, Chebukati gazetted by-elections for Nairobi. After five days, he gazetted people who were to contest for the seat and one of them was former Kiambu Governor, Ferdinand Waititu, who was also impeached. Is there a law for Sonko and one for others? No. We only have one Constitution for Kenya that was promulgated in 2010,” he pointed out.
