Former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko still fighting the battle in hopes to run for the Mombasa gubernatorial seat come August 9th.
The former governor is optimistic that the High Court in Mombasa will rule in his favour to allow him contest for the Mombasa gubernatorial seat.
“I will continue fighting in line with the law. I am not a person who gives up easily,” Sonko said while at the Amina Abdalla Rehabilitation centre for mental illness in Mombasa.
Sonko had earlier on felt relieved when the High Court stopped the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) from printing ballot papers for the governor’s race. The court also stopped Wiper party from replacing Sonko as its candidate for the Mombasa gubernatorial candidate.
With only 27 days to the general elections in the country, the embattled former governor still holds on high hopes of running for the Mombasa gubernatorial seat.
