Former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko will be interrogated by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations on Monday over claims of incitement to violence and undermining authority of a public officer.

The governor had been summoned to appear at the DCI offices on Wednesday at 8am but requested to be allowed to appear on Monday because he had a court date.

The summon seen by the Nation indicates that Mr Sonko is being investigated over allegations of undermining the authority a public officer contrary to section 132 of the Penal Code, incitement to violence and disobedience of the law contrary to section 96 of the Penal Code.

“I have reasons to believe that you Mike Sonko Mbuvi Gideon Kioko has some information that can assist me in my investigations,” read the summon issued by DCI head of investigations Mr John Kariuki.

Mr Sonko was summoned following his claims that he, alongside Interior PS Karanja Kibicho and other unnamed state agents were involved in planning chaos to paint the ODM party in bad light during the 2017 election season.

The PS dismissed the allegations and recorded his statement with the DCI on Monday. Mr Kibicho challenged Mr Sonko to table his evidence against him in court.
