Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has changed his strategy to ensure he remains in office.
This is after the Sonko press conference on Monday was disrupted. The presser was called after Sonko met with his allies ahead of the Thursday tabling of the impeachment motion.
It has emerged that Sonko could not meet with his MCAs in Nairobi over fears of disruption from police who are implementing Covid-19 protocols.
Reports indicate that at least 38 MCAs allied to the governor left Nairobi for Mombasa on Monday evening, soon after a chaotic press briefing at Riverside in Nairobi, where they vowed to defeat the impeachment motion facing Sonko.
According to sources, the MCAs have been operating in three places in Mombasa and Kwale counties in a bid not to be easily located.
The pro-Sonko ward representatives have been moving from one hideout to another as they wait for the D-Day.
Sonko’s private residence in Ukunda and Diani Beach Resort, Kwale County, Salama Bling Beach Resort and English Point Marina — both in Mombasa County — has played host to the MCAs as the governor ring-fences the ward representatives.
“The MCAs on Monday evening went straight to Ukunda after leaving Nairobi. On Tuesday, one section proceeded to English Point Marina while another went to Salama Bling Beach Resort. They will then head back to Ukunda ahead of Thursday’s D-day. The whole point of hopping from one place to another is to avoid being tracked,” said the source who requested anonymity.
The impeachment motion is expected to be tabled on Thursday despite a court barring the same.
