Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi wants Mike Sonko jailed, not impeached.
The subject came up after the Nairobi Governor nominated lawyer and NRMKe General Miguna Miguna to the Deputy Governor office.
People such as political analyst Mutahi Ngunya are of the view that Miguna should take the job and then question Sonko’s integrity over Nairobi’s many problems.
Via Twitter on Friday, Ahmednasir said: “It is wrong to impeach Sonko. It is right to send him back to prison so that he serves the reminder of his jail term.”
He responded via Twitter to a Standard article in which Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe says Sonko must be impeached for not performing.
The county boss reportedly escaped from Shimo la Tewa prison in 1998 but was re-arrested in 1999 to attend the burial of his mother, Saumu Mbuvi.
The Governor was then taken to Kamiti Maximum Security Prison and set free in 2000.
Sonko has been facing backlash from residents and leaders over poor service delivery since his election in August 2017.
He and Ahmednasir recently went gloves off on Twitter after the lawyer said the “county is dead and should be disbanded”.
“It is a national disaster. It will only get worse,” Ahmednasir said on May 10 and asked the President to exercise his Constitutional prerogative and disband the county.
In his response, Sonko called the lawyer a conman.
Last week, President Uhuru Kenyatta asked Sonko to ensure Nairobians live in a clean environment after outcry over bad roads and garbage in the capital city.
Uhuru told the Governor to hire youths to clean up Nairobi “instead of spending over Sh700 million to contract companies”.
