Sonko surrenders Key functions to State House


Embattled Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has handed over key roles of the county to the National Government.

In a land mark agreement signed at State House today, Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko and Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa in concurrence with H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta, signed an agreement, handing over functions of the Nairobi County Government to the National Government, pursuant to Article 187 of the Constitution.

The signing of the agreement was also witnessed by the Speaker of the Senate, Hon. Kenneth Lusaka and the Attorney General Paul Kihara.

The National Government therefore, will take over the following functions of the Nairobi County Government:

County Health services

County Transport services

County Public Works, Utilities and Ancillary services
County Government Planning and Development

The move comes as a breakthrough in the running of county services that had ground to a halt.
