Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has roiled poisonous water, again. This time by asking Governor Mike Sonko to go back and serve the remainder of his term in prison.

In a tweet, the self-styled grand mullah said that it was "WRONG to impeach Governor Sonko".

According to him, Sonko belongs in jail and not City Hall.

"It is RIGHT to send him back to prison so that he serves the [remainder] of his jail term," he added.

Sonko has come under vicious attacks for failure to manage garbage collection and improve state of roads in the city.

Sonko caused shock waves within the ruling Jubilee party after nominating deported lawyer Miguna Miguna as his deputy following the resignation of Polycarp Igathe in January.

Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe called for the impeachment of Governor Sonko for failing to arrest the anguishes of city residents.
