Former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has landed in a hot soup after the judicial Service commission (JSC) summoned him to record a statement over the corruption allegation Against high court judge Said Juma Chitembwe.
The commission has taken several note on video clips posted on social media together with voice recording released by the new tea master Mike Sonko against Chitembwe.
Sonko is expected to appear before the JSC in person within seven days so as to record the statement.
“JSC will require your personal attendance to testify as a witness in the aforesaid matter which will proceed for oral hearing on Tuesday, December 14, 2012,” reads the notice.
This comes after a second petition was filed before the court seeking the removal of judge Juma Chitembwe from office.
Sonko, who is strongly supporting the petion claimed that his friction began from ownership of a disputed parcel of land in kwale county.
Report indicates that, that was the subject of a petition filed by Imrad Beige and David ole Kilusu, who accuse the judge of gross misconduct and judicial incompetence.
Part of the details contained in the petition include audios and videos secretly recorded by Sonko, that he has been releasing on social media, dubbed ‘sonko leaks’. A Nairobi court has since barred Sonko from further releasing the videos. More
