Former senior county employee who Sonko “killed” on Twitter is now dead
Kidero’s Former Pointsman at Nairobi County Government Robert Ayisi Is Dead.
Former Nairobi County Acting County Secretary and Health Chief Officer Robert Ayisi is dead.
Ayisi’s death was first announced prematurely on Twitter by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Monday who later apologized to the public in what his communication team described as a “technical hitch”.
His family says that he has died of Covid-19 complications.
Ayisi was first appointed by former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero as Health Chief Officer.
He served with iron fist during his tenure, at some point Ayisi initiated the sacking and suspension of about 70 nurses who participated in a strike at the Pumwani Maternity Hospital.
But for Kidero, Ayisi was the best to tackle Cityhall mess especially in the health sector .
In 2016 Kidero promoted him and he became the County Secretary in an Acting capacity where he served until Governor Sonko took over.
Former Health CEC Bernard Muia has described Ayisi as a dedicated public servant who meant well for Nairobians .
Mabatini MCA Wilfred Odalo has described him as a man who loved to tell the truth and acted when necessary.
“He approved the construction of Gumba Market but what I can assure is that Ayisi could tell you the way it is without hesitation that’s why some didn’t love him,” Odalo told Ghetto Radio.
