Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja has spoken his mind on the raging debate on the plan to impeach suspended Governor Mike Sonko.
Sakaja said that should the governor be impeached, the city will be in trouble.
He said the county would be thrown into a leadership crisis, considering that Sonko has no deputy.
“This is a risky move. It might be right to impeach him because of misconduct, but we must look at the bigger picture,” said Sakaja.
In an interview with Inooro FM, the senator said that the process would have been okay if Nairobi had a deputy governor.
The lawmaker said he was going to hold a meeting with the MCAs to advise them on the way forward.
“As the senator, I have a role in this. I’m ready to meet them so that we can reason together,” he said.
He also dismissed the governor, who has been accusing him of having certain in interests in the city.
Sonko believes Sakaja is positioning himself to run for the gubernatorial seat in the 2022 elections.
Meanwhile, Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi has asked Governor Sonko to appear before MCAs next Monday to defend himself.
A motion has already been tabled to remove the governor from office.
