Nairobi governor Mike Sonko Mbuvi urged the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) to focus on service delivery and desist from blame games for the betterment of Nairobi residents.
In a statement, the governor shared to Media houses, he accused the NMS for dwelling on blaming his adminstration without focusing on matters that will lead to the growth of Nairobi metropolitan.
“I find it strange and ridiculous that they have been throwing around funny figures to entertain the public while creating the impression that i have refused to fund the Nairobi Metropolitan service,” he said
According to him, NMS has been pursuing petty politics that are not adding value to Nairobi residents, adding that there is no a legal framework for the Nairobi City County Government to transfer funds to the National government
“Is the Nairobi City County government supposed to wire money to major Badi’s personal accounts or his M-pesa and which law allows that,” Sonko asked
The governor applauded his administration citing that on July this year, they paid Sh 120 million to health workers as motivation to those on front line in battling the Covid-19 pandemic that hit this country on March this year.
He named NMS as emerging the new face of cartels in Nairobi, determined to not only restoring ghost workers into the payroll, but also paying the ghost suppliers in the pending bills he said he reduced from Sh 64 Billion to Sh 11Billion.
“How else do they explain their obsession with the payroll and pending bills,there is much work to be done to transform Nairobi,” the Nairobi City Governor observed.
