- 85 roads project commissioned by NMS stalled.
- Transport Committees to probe the stalled projects.
The Transport Committee Nairobi County Assembly is now demanding answers on why the County Government of Nairobi can not complete stalled projects commissioned
by the disbanded Nairobi Metropolitan Services.
Appearing before Transport Committee the county officials says the contracts are still with National Government and that they are only contracting on those that their contractual obligations were met and handed over completely.
Reaction by Committee
The Transport Committee chairman Musango Maithya has now summoned the National government officials again together with County executive to shed more light on the same.
“We called the executive in this meeting just to understand what has been going because out of 85 roads only 13 roads have been worked on by the county government of Nairobi.Most of the responses we are getting from them is that they are yet to receive the contractual document in completion. The county roads are in a very dilapidated state and we must get into the bottom of this matter ant that why we have invited the Nation Government representatives,’’ Musango told the media.
During the swearing in ceremony of Sakaja as the city governor, Badi committed to a smooth transition and eventually transfer of all the functions which he was overseeing.
Badi reported that NMS had accomplished their tasks as assigned by former President Uhuru Kenyatta and that they are ready to handover.
He urged Sakaja to carry on with ongoing projects which were being undertaken by the agency.
The deed of transfer was signed on February 25, 2020, by then Governor Mike Sonko and then Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, with the blessings of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“I am happy to report that NMS has accomplished all the tasks given to do within the two years,” said Maj Gen Badi during Sakaja’s swearing-in ceremony at KICC grounds, Nairobi.
