Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko will on Thursday know whether a case challenging his win will proceed or get struck out.

Justice Msagha Mbogholi will rule whether the poll petition filed by two petitioners will be dismissed or not after all parties in the suit give their submissions.

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and Sonko want the petition by two petitioners Japheph Muroko and Zacheus Okoth struck out saying its defective as it failed to enjoin the Deputy Governor.

Sonko’s poll petition had earlier enjoyed win when his rival in the Nairobi County seat Dr Evans Kidero’s prayer to be enjoined in the case was struck out by the same court.
