  |   Kenya News

Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has nominated Miguna Miguna as his deputy. Sonko made the shocking announcement on Wednesday evening in a letter to the Speaker of the county assembly Beatrice Elachi. He said Miguna meets all the requirements provided for in the constitution to be his deputy.

"In regard to the Supreme Court advisory to the appointment of a deputy governor, upon the seat falling vacant, I hereby forward my nominee Lawyer Miguna Miguna to undergo a full vetting process and approval by the County assembly for the position," Sonko said in the letter dated May 16, 2018. The county's deputy director of Communication Elkana Jacob and Miguna's lawyer Cliff Ombetta confirmed the appointment.

"I will present the letter tomorrow morning at the county assembly," Ombeta told The Star. The nomination comes just two days after a section of MCAs gave the governor seven days to nominate a deputy or face legal action. It also comes hours after Miguna cancelled his flight to Kenya from Canada citing government's failure to issue him with a valid passport.
