Sonko Explains Why Miguna He Chose Miguna To Be His Deputy

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Wednesday evening took Kenyans by surprise when he nominated embattled Canadian lawyer Miguna Miguna to be his deputy.

Mr Sonko went ahead to justify why he wanted the vocal advocate to be second in command saying he is a legitimate Kenyan and a perfect person for the job.

“The nominee meets all the requirements provided for in the constitution, the leadership and integrity act, election act and the county government act,” stated the governor.

Miguna is currently in Canada.He cancelled his trip back to the country after the Ministry of immigration allegedly declined to avail his travelling documents to allow him smooth return scheduled for Wednesday.

In the statement, the vocal lawyer said:

“I was determined to arrive home on schedule, however, just before my departure, I reluctantly cancelled my flight to Nairobi and postponed my next arrival date.”

“In view of the refusal by the Department of Immigration to issue me with a valid Kenyan passport and facilitate my unconditional re-entry into Kenya as ordered by the High Court and formally requested by the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights on my behalf, and on advice from legal counsel.”Read Miguna’s statement in part.

The deputy governor position has been vacant for the past four months since the unprecedented resignation of Polycarp Igathe.

The city boss thereafter assembled several names he would prefer to fill the vacant seat.
