Embattled Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has urged supporters to remain calm ahead of his arraignment on Monday, December 9.

Sonko has been in custody since Friday, December 6 and he is expected to be arraigned in court on Monday on charges of economic crimes.


In a statement released by governor Sunday, December 8, the governor urged supporters to avoid activities that may threaten peace in the city.

“I am a law abiding citizen, and therefore ask my supporters to stay away from the courts or any other activities that may threaten the peace.”

The governor asked his supporters to let the law take its course and pray for him.

“I urge all my supporters to allow the law enforcement agencies to do their work, and let the law take its course. The peace and stability of Nairobi is more important than anything else,” he said.

This comes as Council of Governors has said  they are consulting widely over the arrest of Sonko and will reach out to President Uhuru Kenyatta to convene an emergency Summit to address the situation.
