Nairobi County is the country’s capital. Talks have been ongoing on making the city under sun to be a special county under the central government. The county 047 is one of the phenomenal counties that gives 60 percent of the country’s G.D.P.
The city in the sun has over the years found herself in majority of challenges. The county government has been recorded to have performed poorly in the recent years. The governor has been accused of leading the county to the wrong direction.
From inception of Hon. Sonko into office, there are a lot of issues that have followed the county. His deputy Polycarp Igathe left office and that’s when the people began eyeing on Nairobi County. He left a gap that the incumbent has ignored for so long.
Now the county government members of county assembly had their time also to back off. They have been recorded to fight in their county assemblies. A move that has led them even to denounce the county speaker. Hon Beatrice Elachi.
After the county boss was arrested and is facing graft charges in court, he was reprimanded not to go back to his office until his case his heard and determined. This led the county to be in dispute since, the governor didn’t have a deputy.
When the county speaker was given mandate to take over from the governor, the embattled governor appointed a nominee into the seat of deputy governor’s position. This also has been challenged in the court of law.
Nairobi County should be managed by the central government to ensure that all services for Nairobians comes from the top government since the county government has failed to manage the mandate given to them.
Some former city leaders have also called to the disbandment of the county giving room to new leadership that will do the prerequisite required of them in the county.
