Various leaders across the nation continue to give various opinions on the National Government’s move to take over some key functions of the Nairobi County Government.
President Uhuru Kenyatta put the hammer on Nairobi down by appointing the head of Nairobi Metropolis and his deputy who will be running the county functions on behalf of the National Government, posing the question… What happens to Governor Mike Sonko and his team?
Former Kakamega Senator Dr. Boni Khalwale is among the many leaders who have given their views with regards to the take over, calling for the immediate dissolution of the county.
Khalwale has also ridiculed Sonko saying that he is left with controlling pornography and licensing of dogs.
“The essential functions of Nairobi have ALL been taken over by Nairobi Metropolitan Services. Left with the mere control of pornography, control of air pollution and licensing of dogs, no further funds should be wasted on the Nairobi County. Dissolve it!” tweeted Khalwale.
During the official takeover ceremony at State House yesterday, president Uhuru emphasized that the take over will ensure that city cartels are finished and that city residents are given efficient and essential services.
