Karen Nyamu makes a comeback at the latest Nairobi county CEC’s appointment.


Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has fired Finance executive Pauline Kahiga, who returned to the office days ago after a tussle with MCAs who wanted to remover her, and Agriculture executive Winfred Gathagu.

Suspended executives Charles Kerich and Mohamed Dagane are comeback after more than three months in the cold.

Ms Kahiga held the Lands docket, alongside Finance, when Mr Kerich was suspended.

Ms Kahiga returned to the office last Friday after Government Press CEO Mwenda Njoka rejected a notice signed by acting County Secretary Leboo Morintat, that indicated she had been degazetted and Mr Igambi appointed in acting capacity.

Amid the flares,Mr Dagane has been moved to the Roads, Transport and Public Works department.

Joining the cabinet, if successfully vetted, will be former Nairobi Woman Representative aspirant Karen Nyamu and George Fredrick Omogi.

Karen Nyamu, a lawyer, will take over the Agriculture docket and Mr Omogi the Trade and Cooperatives department, which Mr Igambi headed.

Environment and Water CEC Vesca Kangogo has been moved to Devolution and Public Service Management.

Ms Kangogo swaps places with Larry Wambua, who has been heading the Devolution docket.

Mr Wambua has previously been at the helm of the Environment department.

Newton Munene retains the ICT and E-government docket while Lucia Mulwa takes over the Education and Sports department.

Governor Sonko has also retained Leboo Morintat as County Secretary, Lydia Kwamboka as County Attorney and Peter Kamau Mugo as Chief of Staff

Following Governor Lenolkulal successful challenge at the court Mike Sonko has been validated to continue with county activities untouched pending the determination of the case against him on corruption charges.

Mr Lenolkulal made changes in April and November 2019, but Director of Public Prosecution(DPP) no Noordin Haji objected and sought to have him detained for failing to obey a court order that barred him from accessing his office.
