Mike Sonko has received gag orders stopping him from further exposing the rot in the Kenyan Judiciary after a series of damning exposé.
The former Nairobi governor has been sharing on his social media platforms recordings which expose how corruption which is deeply rooted in the Judiciary.
Sonko’s leaks was designed to coincide with the swearing in of the current Nairobi Governor Anne Kananu.
The former Nairobi governor was removed from office after being impeached by the County Assembly and later Senate approved his impeachment.
Sonko filed a petition to stop the swearing in of Kananu as Nairobi governor, which was thrown out by High Court Judge Said Chitembwe.
Expectedly, Chitembwe has been one of the judges adversely mentioned in the #Sonkoleaks, alongside his lawyers Cecil Miller and George Kithi.
In his exposé, Sonko captured Chitembwe on video and audio recordings accepting bribes to deliver a favorable ruling in his bid to stop Kanunu’s swearing in.
The former Nairobi governor also claimed that his lawyers Cecil Miller and George Kithi received over KSh315 million bribe to stop representing him in court.
Miller and Kithi moved to court seeking orders to stop Sonko from further releasing damning leaks that exposes them and the Judiciary at large.
The two disgraced lawyers ultimately obtained the gag orders from Milimani Chief Magistrate H.M Nyaga.
“Pending hearing interpartes the defendants are hereby restrained from publishing further statements/articles forthwith as regards the plaintiffs/applicants,” says the order.
Sonko said he received the order after getting back home “after a long day of tying up the subsequent episodes being 5B, 5C, 6 A, B and 7 (of the exposé ).”
“I have just gotten to my residence after a long day of tying up the subsequent episodes being 5B, 5C, 6 A, B and 7; only for my security to notify me that a court order has been served upon me ostensibly gagging further release of the expose,” Sonko tweeted.
Meanwhile the Judiciary gave High Court Judge Said Chitembwe 14 days to respond to Sonko’s leak which exposes him for taking bribes to deliver favorable rulings.
