Nairobi MCAs ask State to help run capital city
Nairobi MCAs are asking the national government to help in the running of the county government. The leaders have dropped plans to form an ad hoc committee to oversee the running of City Hall in the absence of Governor Mike Sonko.
They are now pushing for the revival of Nairobi Regeneration Committee to take over the running of county affairs.
This comes after the MCAs agreed that the ad hoc committee had no legal backing and its constitution would have been challenged in court.
The county legislators Thursday unanimously resolved to have the national government revamp the committee to take over the running of City Hall as long as Governor Sonko is still barred from office by the court until determination of a graft case facing him.
The Regeneration Committee was formed in 2018 by President Uhuru Kenyatta to oversee key services in Nairobi County.
