Functions of Nairobi County Government have been handed over to the National Government pursuant to Article 187 of the Constitution as per statement sent to newsrooms by State House Kanze Dena.
In a land mark agreement signed at State House today (Tuesday) , embattled Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko and Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa in concurrence with President Uhuru Kenyatta, signed an agreement, handing over functions of the Nairobi County Government to the National Government, pursuant to Article 187 of the Constitution.
The signing of the agreement was also witnessed by the Speaker of the Senate, Hon. Kenneth Lusaka and the Attorney General Paul Kihara.
The National Government, therefore, will take over the following functions of the Nairobi County Government:
i) County Health services
ii) County Transport services
iii) County Public Works, Utilities and Ancillary services
iv) County Government Planning and Development
This will ensure Nairobi residents receive services efficiently.
The move comes as a breakthrough in the running of county services that had ground to a halt.
