Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has moved to court seeking  to stop treasury  from releasing  Nairobi county  government money to  Nairobi Metropolitan Services saying NMS  has no legal back up to receive county cash.

The case has been certified as an urgent  by the court.

Sonko’s petition was filed by his lawyers led by  Kinyanjui Rosemary Kimani.

According to Sonko, Deed of Transfer indicates that the funding of all transferred functions should be done by the county government .

In a petition the county government  through Chief Finance Officer Halkano Waqo, Sonko also wants the court to stop NMS from micromanaging its budgetary allocations.

Last week Sonko asked senate to summon NMS boss Mohammed  Badi over county budgets and development projects saying  NMS boss has been ignoring  him with an aim of outshining him.

‘‘I cannot  launch any   project , I did 100 roads, I need those who voted for me to see what I have done, instead all this has been blocked by NMS.’’ Sonko told Senate.

Sonko maintained that Badi has been blackmailing him with impeachment threats and even blocking him from attending any NMS functions.
