Speaker Benson Mutura Sworn in as Acting Nairobi Governor

Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Benson Mutura on Monday was sworn in as acting Governor for 60 days pending the election of a new Governor.

He was sworn at by Judge Jairus Ngaah, at County headquarters.

This comes after the Senate upheld the decision by Nairobi County Assembly to impeach Embattled Governor Mike Sonko.

Sonko was facing charges including gross violation of the Constitution and other laws, abuse of office, violation of national laws, and lacking the mental capability to run the county government.

Mutura was elected as Speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly in August after the resignation of Beatrice Elachi.
