Nairobi Deputy Governor Ann Kananu (pictured) is today expected to be sworn in as the county boss to succeed Mike Sonko, who was impeached last December.

 Yesterday, the Assumption of Office Committee chaired by County Secretary Jairus Musumba was putting in place the final touches ahead of the swearing in ceremony.

Musumba has also requested Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Anne Amadi to avail a judge for the event. The swearing-in will take place at KICC’s Comesa grounds at 10am.

Last week, the Supreme Court cleared the last hurdle after it threw out a case filed by Sonko challenging Kananu’s swearing in.

The apex court dismissed an application by Sonko ruling that it lacked jurisdiction to hear the suit.

“The court lacks jurisdiction to entertain the appeal given that his main appeal at the Court of Appeal challenging his impeachment has not been heard,” ruled the judges.

 The Supreme Court’s decision marked the end of the road for Sonko who launched a legal fightback not only to stop Kananu from succeeding him but also to quash the proceedings that led to his impeachment in December last year
