Sonko initially challenged a declaration that March 20, 2022, was a public holiday.

After the day passed without the court issuing the orders, he amended his case, seeking to now bar Azimio supporters from going to the streets on Mondays and Thursdays.

She directed Sonko to serve Azimio leaders and appear before her on April 3, 2023, to set a date for a hearing.

However, his lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui insisted that the court should intervene as children are not going to school and businesses have been shut.
