Ex Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has revealed why he has been recording conversations between him and people in the judiciary.

Speaking to a local TV station, Sonko claimed he is only helping Chief Justice Martha Koome and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to fight impunity in the country.

Sonko further said he was releasing videos in order to fix Kenya’s Judiciary and expose cartels running Nairobi County.

“I’m fighting for the justice of over 40 million Kenyans. We have to fix this country and the judiciary,” he said.

Vowing to release more videos, Sonko says he has other recorded clips that he started compiling since he assumed power as the Nairobi Governor in his efforts to restore faith in the top seat.

“I started recording people when I became the governor of Nairobi. I was trying to bring public confidence in the office of the governor,” Sonko said.

This comes after the embattled leader was served with a court order stopping him from publishing information he alleges is a clear testament of the ongoing corruption in the judiciary.

Sonko’s former lawyers obtained the orders barring the former county chief from further publishing any exposé against them pending a hearing of their case.

However, on his part, the embattled former governor said he shall challenge the same order at the inter parties hearing.

“As a law-abiding citizen, who abides by the rule of law, I stand guided and fully comply to the same order safe that I will challenge the same order at the inter-parties hearing,” Sonko said.

On Tuesday, Sonko released a video footage allegedly showing Chitembwe discussing how to compromise a case.
