Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko resigns as a member of Jubilee Party

Former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko announced his formal resignation from the ruling Jubilee Party on Friday, March 11, 2022. The impeached county executive requested in his letter that the party headquarters accept his resignation because it was consistent with his right to join any political party of his choosing. “Please accept this letter as formal notice of my resignation as a Jubilee Party member, effective March 10, 2022. This is in exercising of my constitutional right to join any political party of my choice “Parts of the letter was read aloud.

Sonko also expressed his gratitude to the ruling party’s leadership for their support throughout his tenure as Nairobi Governor. The ex-county head, on the other hand, stated that he was removed from office ‘illegally, unconstitutionally, unlawfully, and maliciously.’ The flamboyant politician also sent a message of goodwill to the members of the party, wishing them well in the future. Sonko went on to thank the party officials who supported him when the proposal to remove him from office was presented to the County Assembly and Senate.
“I would want to thank the party leadership for this support that they provided me while I was serving as a Governor of the Nairobi City County before I was illegally, unconstitutionally, criminally, and viciously removed from office,” he wrote. The former Governor went on to wish the party members success in their political careers in his resignation letter. His role was taken by Anne Kananu after his impeachment, and she has expressed interest in the position.
