Supporters of Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko scampered to safety after police fired teargas to disperse them in a botched march against the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission offices in Nairobi.

At the same time, the University of Nairobi students lit fires to protest the summon of Governor Sonko.

On November 4th, Sonko claimed that a top EACC official was out to frustrate his sustained fight against land grabbing in Nairobi. 

The embattled Nairobi Governor Sonko allegedly bought full-page ad space on The Standard to lament over how EACC’s Director of Investigations, Abdi Mohamud had been joined to cartels to attempt to cover up his corrupt activities.

“I will be the one to decide where my statement will be recorded within the Integrity Centre, for I know what they are capable of. Fellow Kenyans, be the judge. In the meantime, the cartels must fall!” Sonko opined in his report posted on Facebook. 

The governor is wanted to answer questions related to his self-declaration form that he handed to the EACC while seeking clearance to run for his Gubernatorial seat.

“The commission pursuant to its constitutional and statutory mandate as set out in the Leadership and Integrity Act, 2012 is investigating allegations that you provided false information to the commission in your self-declaration form dated 9 March 2017 submitted to the commission,” Mbarak stated in a notice dated October 28.
