Impeached former Nairobi county governor Mike Mbuvi alias Sonko has been declared mentally fit to stand trial.
A mental assessment report done the impeached Nairobi Governor has revealed that his health condition does not bar him from attending and following court proceedings.
The assessment had been ordered by Nairobi Magistrate Peter Ouko after lawyers representing Sonko told the court that the former governor was unfit to stand trial on account of his bipolar condition.
Yesterday, the court heard and ruled while noting that the report dated March 11 cited that the former Governor’s mental health and speech are normal.
The report further noted that although Sonko is receiving treatment for a bipolar condition, it was established that it has not barred him from going about his daily business.
“With that finding I do believe that the activities entails attending court process,I therefore reconfirm the hearing dates given which starts on 29 this month,” the court ruled.
Last week, the prosecution dismissed an application to have a Ksh.10 million extortion case against Sonko adjourned on claims the ex-city boss was not fit to stand trial.
