Supreme Court Rules on Sonko’s Bid to Reopen Impeachment Case

Supreme Court Rules on Sonko's Bid to Reopen Impeachment Case

Former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has suffered a blow in his desperate bid to reopen a lawsuit on his impeachment.

The businessman had asked the Supreme Court to allow him to introduce fresh evidence.

The additional evidence, Sonko said, is in the form of videos and audio recordings pertaining to alleged malpractices by Judge Juma Chitembwe, who presided over his case at the High Court.

Sonko also sought to adduce audio and video recordings of Chief Justice Martha Koome during an interview at Spice FM, where she allegedly made comments about his appeal that was pending determination at the Apex Court.

Additionally, Sonko wanted the Supreme Court to set aside its July 15, 2022 ruling that upheld his impeachment.

But the Supreme Court has thrown out the politician’s request citing Sonko’s failure to meet the threshold set in the Supreme Court Rules, 2020, for adducing additional evidence.

“Mr Sonko has not explained the relevance of the so-called new evidence considering that what was before the court was his removal from office, whose evidence was quite different from the conduct of Justice Chitembwe,” said the court.

“At the time he lodged the appeal in the Court of Appeal and even in this court, he was well aware of the gazette notice of May 18, 2022 in which a tribunal was appointed to investigate the conduct of Justice Chitembwe,” the seven-judge bench added.

Led by CJ Koome, the judges added that Sonko’s petition before the High Court was heard by a bench of three judges and further that the Court of Appeal upheld the conclusion by the High Court.

Didmus Barasa Shooting Case: Autopsy Reveals What Killed Brian Olunga

Brian Olunga, a bodyguard to Kimilili politician Brian Khaemba who was allegedly shot by Kimilili MP-elect Didmus Barasa, died of a gunshot to the head, an autopsy has revealed.

Western region pathologist Dr DM Muchana conducted the two-hour autopsy at Bright Mortuary in Kimilili on Tuesday. He was in the company of family doctor Dickson Olunga and a detective from the homicide department Francis Nyabutho.

Dr Muchana said Brian Olunga died of a pistol bullet that was shot at close range and struck the right side of his head.

“We have carried out the postmortem and we have all agreed that the deceased died after bleeding when the bullet hit his right side of the head and stuck in the brain,” said the pathologist.

The bullet that killed Olunga was also recovered as homicide investigators race against time to complete investigations and prefer charges against Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa by August 24, 2022, as directed by the court on Tuesday.

Police have also seized a pistol from MP-elect who is a licensed gun holder.

Police had earlier withdrawn the pistol but Barasa obtained a court order reinstating the weapon he is suspected to have used in the incident.

Barasa remains in police custody until August 24, when the case will be mentoned.

Pathologists have failed to nail down what caused the death of Embakasi East Returning Officer Daniel Musyoka.

Five pathologists comprising three government pathologists, one representing the family and another from the  Independent Medical Legal Unit conducted the autopsy at the Loitokitok sub-county hospital mortuary on Wednesday.

By 5 pm, all five pathologists could not establish the cause of Musyoka’s death. They resolved to take 12 samples from Musyoka’s body for further toxicology and DNA tests in Nairobi.

Also present at the Loitokitok sub-county hospital mortuary were CSI-DCI forensics from Nairobi, DCI officers from Loitokitok, representatives from Haki Africa, IMLU, MedUp, IPOA, and family.

Preliminary investigations show Musyoka may have been killed on Monday evening or early Tuesday morning.

Oloitokitok police boss Kipruto Ruto said Musyoka’s body had fresh wounds indicating the incident took place hours before he was discovered.

“When the police arrived at the scene, we discovered that it was a male body and it was still fresh,” he said.

Ruto also mentioned that Musyoka had wounds in the arm indicating a struggle with the killers.

Police also suspect the killers were familiar with the area given the thicket where the body was found.

According to Ruto, it would have been difficult for new people to manoeuvre the forest, especially in the morning.
