Mike Sonko was elected illegally, Miguna alleges dubious forms

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko faked his way during the August 8 General Election, and his win is now being questioned following emergence of questionable Forms 37B.

This was revealed on Saturday, September 30 by former independent candidate for the seat, Miguna Miguna who fared rather poorly in the polls.

Miguna took to social media to announce the findings claiming that out of the 17 forms, only two were genuine adding that they were going to take unspecified action against the county boss.

“Of the 17 Form 37Bs used to fraudulently declare @MikeSonko Nairobi Governor, 15 are fake. We are going to #ArrestSonko soon.” The former gubernatorial candidate said.

According to the outspoken lawyer turned politician, Sonko was fraudulently declared the winner and promised action would be taken in coming days.

Miguna perhaps seeks to ride on the Supreme Court ruling that nullified presidential election because of such discrepancies. It should be known, however, that the window for aggrieved candidates to challenge election results in court has already expired.

Sonko emerged victorious in a crowded field of contestants to beat his rivals who included Miguna, incumbent Governor Evans Kidero (ODM) as well as former presidential candidate Peter Kenneth (Independent).

Miguna is yet to concede defeat since Sonko was announced winner and has been on a rampage supporting Raila Odinga ahead of the repeat presidential poll.

Kidero had threatened to challenge Sonko’s win in court but later dropped the bid and literally handed the reigns to his bitter critic in a colourful ceremony attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
