After asking the court to determine whether his resignation was formalised, Miguna Miguna has responded to the move by former Nairobi Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe.
In an affidavit, Igathe said his letter of resignation was not acknowledged by the speaker of the Nairobi City County Assembly.
In a tweet, Miguna Miguna called the move a fear of defeat.
“Both Despot Uhuru Kenyatta and Conman Raila Odinga are so scared of being DEFEATED in the scheduled Nairobi County by-election that they have gone and fetched DEADWOOD Igathe to try and retrieve his resignation letter through the back door. It will NOT work. #DespotsMustFall.”
Igathe says that as required by the constitution, no one acknowledged his letter of resignation in January 2018.
“That the legal effect of the failure to formalise or recognise my resignation and the failure by the Nairobi County or any public institution to conduct any legal formalities to conclude my resignation is a matter to be determined by this honourable court in my humble view,” igathe in his affidavit.
Polycarp Igathe was Sonko’s running mate in the 2017 General Elections.
Nairobi’s governor seat succession and a by-election heats up and everyone wants part of what will only be a short reign.
