Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has for the first time addressed his impending impeachment by the county assembly. 

Through his Twitter account, Sonko stated he was ready to go home even as the impeachment motion gathers momentum. 

The controversial county boss noted that there was life outside politics. 

"I'm ready to go home as I said before, there's life after politics. My father was not a politician," Sonko said. 

Sonko, whose impeachment has been motivated by the fact that he has failed to release funds to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services, maintained that the body was illegally formed by President Uhuru Kenyatta. 

"I don't need to be saved. I will stand firm like the Senate when they were dealing with the County Revenue Bill. I will not, I shall not, and I'm not going to append my signature to give funds to an illegal entity," he added.

 The impeachment motion was presented before the assembly by Minority Leader Michael Ogada with 82 MCAs.

Ogada wants Sonko ejected based on four charges, including gross violation of the Constitution.

By press time, a total of 86 out of 122 MCA had appended their signatures to the motion, surpassing the threshold required to table a notice of impeachment motion.

MCAs allied to Governor Mike Sonko had said the plot to impeach the county boss is over his refusal to consent to the bill on the Sh37.5 billion 2020-21 budget.
