Pauline Akuku Assumes Office As New Acting Nairobi County Assembly Clerk As Ngwele Battles His Fate In Court


Pauline Akuku has officially assumed office as the new acting Clerk Nairobi  County Assembly following  a court order that directed Jacob Ngwele to step aside until the petition revolving the appointment of a new Clerk is heard and determined.

In a communication  dispatched to Newsrooms on Wednesday, the Assembly leadership clarified that Pauline Akuku will take over following interdiction of  Adah Onyango as deputy clerk on 19th June this year.

The letter says Adah Onyango is no longer deputy Clerk at the assembly of Nairobi.

‘‘In the meantime ,in accordance with section 4.2 of the public service commission Discipline Manual for  Public  Service [May 2016], You are hereby interdicted from exercising the duties of your office and any other assembly related work ..while on interdiction you will be paid half salary.’’ The Communication reads in part.

There have been confusion on whom takes over from Ngwele after Wednesday’s  orders but according to Speaker Beatrice Elachi’s Office  Pauline Akuku was appointed as deputy clerk and she therefore assumes office of the Clerk as directed by court.

In court documents seen by Ghetto Radio News, Adah Onyango was listed as deputy clerk a move that has caused confusion to media and general public.

There have been  leadership wrangles at the assembly  that saw eruption of chaos with Mlango Kubwa MCA Patricia Mutheu being clobbered at the premises.
