Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has been shielded from string of attacks sponsored by Nairobi Senator Hon Johnson Sakaja.
Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has been under-siege from Senator Sakaja who is pushing for the appointing of the Deputy Governor.
Flamboyant Governor Sonko been questioned on how he is running Nairobi alone with Senator Sakaja calling for senate intervention.
But Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko is now untouchable. Nairobi MCAs have built a wall of defense for him.
The legislators led by Leader of the Majority Abdi Hassan Guyo said that the Senate should stop engaging in non-issues and concentrate on its mandate.
This comes as Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is set to appear on Wednesday before the Senate over his “one-man show” style of leadership.
He has been invited to appear before the Senate Standing Committee on Devolution and Intergovernmental Relations to explain why he has been running the capital city without a deputy governor for the last one year three months.
The Majority Leader who spoke on behalf of the members said that the Governor has a full cabinet in office with all the County Executive Members in office.
On issues to do with the funds, the majority leader clearly stated that are no funds which are allocated to the office of the deputy governor.
“All funds go to the office of the governor, therefore, you cannot claim that the Governor is spending money meant for his deputy governor,” he explained.
The legislators urged the Senate to perform its duties but respect the county government of Nairobi.
