Embattled Nairobi Governor’s wife has lost her seat as a Nominated Member of County Assembly.
Sonko had nominated his wife Habiba Ibrahim Hussein as a Member of County Assembly after the 2017 General elections but the lass has never stepped a foot in City Hall.
Her position was declared invalid after successive no-shows running up to two consecutive years.

Sources at the County Government whispered to Opera News that Habiba rarely attends Assembly meetings, Committee, and sessions as she is more of a stay at home wife.
“I know the relationship. I know she is Sonko’s second wife, that’s why you never see her in the Assembly because she’s supposed to be kept away from the public,” a close source said.
Another source said the Governor and Habiba were expecting a baby some years back but no one knows any other developments because the woman is not in the public.
Interestingly, Habiba has no social media presence at all. It nearly took Opera News a leg and a hand to get one of her photos.
She is one among 38 Nominated MCAs in the Second Assembly of Special Elect Members at the Nairobi County Government where only two are men; Husuni Alawi Mohammed and Kabiro Mbugua.
