According to the Kiambu court, the prosecution side failed to provide sufficient reason why Sonko could be denied bail or bond in the assault case.

Chief Magistrate Stella Atambo said that Sonko should always cooperate with investigating officers and should heed to any summon by the investigating officers

The court also said that the two parties are free to settle the matter outside the court

KDRTV understands that Sonkois facing 12 charges including a link to a terror group

In other reports, there was a morning drama at the Nairobi Hospital as police arrived and picked Mike Sonko and took him to court.

KDRTV had reported that the former governor of Nairobi was admitted to Nairobi hospital on Monday night after he complained of stomach complications and blood pressure at Gigiri police cells

Ahead of the court sessions, the police were alerted that the politician was at the hospital

The police then drove there and picked Mike Sonko and took him to the court at around 11.15 am.
