Tending to the media on Saturday, Sonko blamed Chief Justice Martha Koome for being important for the seven appointed authority seat that conveyed the decision asserting she was compromised.
He contended that the CJ had beforehand currently communicated her stand about his case in the media, an activity he says showed her unprejudiced nature in this way contending that she shouldn’t be among the appointed authorities managing the decision.
“Heri nishindwe kwa haki lakini si dhulma. Martha Koome was heard on media saying that an indicted lead representative remaining parts denounced until the case is upset, a detainee stays a detainee until his allure is maintained and the case is toppled,” Sonko expressed.
“She was to blame since in opposition to the law, the way that she is a Supreme Court judge, she shouldn’t be for my situation administering on the grounds that she previously had an assessment that I shouldn’t be a lead representative and in the IEBC list.”

In outcome, Sonko presently believes the CJ should resign from her job saying she ought to likewise have a painful but much needed consequence as she isn’t exempt from the rules that everyone else follows.
“Martha Koome isn’t exempt from the laws that apply to everyone else, I am not against her, I regard her but rather she ought not be the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. I believe she should step down in a good way, I am not saying this since I was burdened by the decision however I have my own reasons,” he expressed.
“She has resisted the mandate that one shouldn’t remark on a continuous case… ajichukulie hatua na ajifunge miezi sita for opposing her own request.”
Sonko emphasized that he wouldn’t avoid battling for his privileges, taking note of that he will in any case be in the Mombasa Governor’s challenge come August.
He anyway stayed prudent on his game play, calling attention to that he would illuminate regarding his choices and plans later.
“I will be on the voting form, the law permits me to be on the polling form. The choice of the Supreme Court was recused, there was phony,” he said.
“I will talk on my tentative arrangements… This case has been not entirely settled without getting the opportunity to introduce our proof.”
Simultaneously, the beset legislator kept up with that the choice by the seven-judge seat on Friday was slanted asserting it was raced through and he was not concurred satisfactory time after the Mombasa administering on Thursday.
“As the adjudicator of the Supreme court, she ought to have allowed me seven days or 10 days I wrap up with the Mombasa High Court, what was the rush? Have you at any point seen a case been done today then, at that point, resolved tomorrow? The decision was an opposite cycle,” he said.
During the conference on Friday, a joint decision conveyed by the appointed authorities decided that the denunciation procedures against Sonko before the Nairobi County Assembly and the Senate were appropriately led as per Article 181 of the Constitution, Section 33 of the County Governments Act and Standing Orders of the Assembly and the Senate.
