Nairobi County MCAs, NMS Boss Clash Over Corruption At City hall
Opposition MCAs at the Nairobi County Assembly have now given Acting Nairobi Governor Ann Kananu seven days to reshuffle her government saying that the current officials are manipulating funds to suit brokers and few Jubilee MCAs who are using the president’s name to enrich themselves.
The MCAs specifically want Finance Officer Allan Igambi, his chief officer Halkano Waqo out of office.
‘‘We are telling Ann to stop being tossed around… you are the deputy governor stop being tossed… if you fail, we will hold you personally accountable,’’ Minority leader Michael Ogada said.
Ogada also demanded accountability of Ksh. 1.1 billion Covid-19 funds that were allocated to the Nairobi Metropolitans Services accusing the agency of not providing services now as presumed.
‘‘We have an incompetent Finance CEC, one Allan Igambi who knows nothing in Finance. If you go to his office instead of seeing documents in his tray what you get are groundnuts…how can we run a county with such people?’’ Minority Whip Peter Imwatok posed.
Meanwhile according to County Government Union Secretary General Festus Ngari, about 29 staff members have died in the last two weeks.
‘‘Our medical cover has expired for the last two weeks we have lost 29 colleagues. We telling this government that management of workers needs proper planning but not by crises,’’ he added.
Deputy Governor Ann Kananu was sworn into office after former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko was ousted from office.
Sonko’s ouster was led by Minority Leader Michael Ogada who sponsored the motion in the assembly.
