Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko was on Wednesday petitioned in court over abortion billboards erected in the city.
Over 10 Civil Rights groups that filed the case,wants the court to compelled the governor to pull down the billboards.
The group said that the information on the billboard is against Article 43(1)(a) of the constitution.
They also observed that the billboards have misleading information to the public about abortion.
