Sonko Fires Two CECs In New Reshuffle
Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has once again reshuffled his cabinet firing current Acting County Executive for Finance Pauline Kahiga and Winnie Gathangu of Lands.
In the new re-alignment former ‘Mr. Fix It’ Charles Kerich bounced back in the Land,Urban Planning and Housing docket.
The list also includes Mohammed Dagane who was suspended during the collapse of a building at Top Talent school in Dagoreti. Dagane has now been transferred to Roads and infrastructure docket.
The new faces that have been brought back are politicians Karen Nyamu, who will steer Agriculture Ministry, George Fredrick appointed as new CEC Trade and Commerce while Omogi Osewe will head Tourism and Co-operative .
Nyamu,George and Osewe will now have to wait for vetting by the county assembly before assuming office.
Sonko’s Communication Director Elkana Jacobs has confirmed the changes saying that the changers are geared towards steering service delivery.
‘‘The changes are true and what the governor wants is better service delivery to all Nairobians and smooth running of county government.’’ Elkana said.
Sonko’s decision to reshuffle his cabinet has been influenced by yesterday’s ruling on the case where the high court declined to cancel the cashbail of Samburu Governor Moses Lenolkulal following his move to reshuffle his CECs.
