In a rejoinder, the Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP, Noordin Haji has ordered for the arrest of Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko over graft related offences. The DPP says there is sufficient evidence for Sonko’s prosecution.

Haji says Governor Sonko and a section of the County’s Executive officials are to be prosecuted for the loss of Sh357 million of taxpayer’s money.
