Sonko Holds Prayer Session Minutes After Appearing in Court (Video)

Governor Mike Sonko showcased a different side from the norm as he appeared at the Voi Law Courts.

Sonko had presented himself to the court after being implicated with assault charges on a police officer during his dramatic arrest in 2019.

The embattled governor and his team were filmed outside the premises holding a prayer session.

A lady among the group, requests for a prayer to be said before they exited the venue in order to give thanks to God for the latest developments.

The governor known for his numerous antic filled behaviours, seemed resigned to the fact that it is only divine intervention that would lift him from his predicament.

Following the conclusion of the prayer, another lady breaks into song as the governor boards his vehicle heading for the exit.

The controversial politician received a boost after DPP Noordin Haji opted to withdraw the assault case that had been filed by Rashid Yakub, the coast regional commander.

According to Haji’s office, Yakub had no interest in pursuing the case any further.

Despite the small ‘win’, the county boss remained a problem laden man as he still has a pending corruption case.

Last Friday, Sonko was dealt a massive blow in his quest to finally have a Deputy Governor.

Speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly Beatrice Elachi rejected Sonko’s nominee Anne Mwenda, stating that there were irregularities in the manner used by the governor.

Elachi noted that she consulted IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati on the matter and informed her there were new guidelines in place after the Supreme Court advisory.

The vocal leader uttered that she did not want to make a decision that would come back to haunt her.

Chebukati articulated that Mwenda needed to satisfy the qualifications included in the constitution.

Whether faith will be Sonko’s get out of jail card or trouble will continue chasing the Jubilee party member, remains the unanswered question.
