Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko was on Tuesday stripped off of Nairobi governorship.
Sonko who surrendered Nairobi County to the National government through an agreement signed between him and Devolution Cabinet secretary Eugene Wamalwa has been at the centre of Nairobi’s intrigues.
Recently, the high court barred Sonko against stepping in his Nairobi governor’s officer over embezzlement of 357 million shillings allegations.
The signing in of the agreement that was witnessed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Senate speaker Ken Lusaka and Attorney general Kihara Kariuki at statehouse leaves the Nairobi governor with no work to do as the main roles have been officially taken by the national government.
The national government officially takes over County health services, Transport services, County public works, utilities and ancillary services and county government planning and development.
According to a statement signed by statehouse spokesperson Kanze Dena- Mararo, the move comes as a breakthrough in the running of county services that had been grounded.
Sonko is battling 19 counts of corruption at the high court.
He is also facing impeachment after a motion was tabled and the Nairobi county assembly last week is scheduled for debate on Wednesday.
