Majority of the Senators voted overwhelmingly in favour of all the four charges brought against Sonko which include Gross Violation of the Constitution, Abuse of Office, Misconduct and Crimes against National Law, effectively ending Sonko’s reign after staying in office for three years.

The charges were supported by 27 Senators against 16.

Two Senators including Nairobi’s Johnson Sakaja abstained.
