Blow To Sonko As ODM  MCAs Pull Out From Committee Vetting Deputy Governor Nominee


Opposition  MCAs in the Nairobi County Assembly have vowed not to participate in vetting of  Sonko’s nominee for Deputy Governor post  describing the process to carry out the exercise as  shambolic and unlawful.

According to minority   leader David  Mberia says that the move by  majority leader Charles Thuo to call for sittings to vet nominee Ann  Mwendwa is unprocederal and is not mandated to do so.

He has accused Thuo  of being used by Governor Sonko to drive unlawful agenda of the executive in the assembly.

‘‘We  have directed all our members not to attend that exercise called by Thuo  because it is an illegality and  it’s only the speaker who is the chair of the appointing  committee with the powers to call for such a meeting.’’ Mberia said.

Meanwhile Thuo has denied calling for a meeting to vet  Deputy Governor nominee terming the claims by Mberia as misplaced.

In an advisory by the court , DG nominee will go through  the same test as of the governor before being  appointed.

Mwendwa is currently serving as chief officer disaster management .
