Sonko Surrenders Nairobi County
The National Government has taken over the functions of the Nairobi County Government.
This has happened after Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko signed an agreement at State House Nairobi with Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa in the presence of President Uhuru Kenyatta handing over functions of Nairobi County.
Article 187 of the constitution apparently allows the transfer of functions or power from one government level to another.
A statement sent to newsrooms by State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena says that the National Government will take over the functions of County Health Services, County Transport Services, County Public Works, Utilities and Ancillary services and finally County Government Planning and Development.
Dena says that this will ensure that Nairobi residents receive servi es efficiently.
The moves comes against a backdrop of an impeachment motion against Sonko that was tabled last week by Makongeni MCA Peter Imwatok.
