Sonko wants Kidero to stop further activities at City Hall

Nairobi Governor-elect, Mike Mbuvi Sonko, has asked outgoing Governor, Dr. Evans Kidero, not to withdraw any funds from the City County account with the Central Bank of Kenya.

Sonko also wants Kidero not to remove any materials from City Hall or any other Nairobi County Office items.

Further, the Governor-elect want Kidero not to enter into any contract with any third-party committing the Nairobi County resources in any manner effective August 8, 2017.

In a letter addressed to Kidero, the Governor-elect says that it is necessary to ensure smooth transition of the reins of power in the Nairobi County from Kidero, stem financial hemorrhage, forestall collapse of services and to maintain accurate and proper records of the county government.

He wants by close of business today (August 15), Kidero to appoint a transition committee constituting of three members and that he is also allowed to appoint three similar members to help in the transition process.

Failure to this, Sonko has threatened to file a suit in court.

“Please liaise with us in the meeting of the foregoing objectives to enable us secure the best interests of the residents of the Nairobi City County and note further that our client has instructed that in default of your responses by the close of business August 15, 2017, we have instructions to seek legal redress,” reads the letter.
