Nairobi governor-elect Mike Mbuvi Sonko has written to Dr. Evans Kidero asking him not to carry out any further activities at City Hall.
The former Nairobi senator has asked 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 Offices.
Further, Sonko wants Kidero not to enter into any contract with any third-party committing the Nairobi County resources in any manner effective August 8, 2017.
In the letter addressed to Kidero, Sonko wanted the outgoing governor to appoint a transition committee constituting of three members by the close of business yesterday (August 15).
Failure to comply with the demands, Sonko has threatened to file a suit in court.
According to Sonko, “it is necessary to ensure a smooth transition of the reins of power in the Nairobi County from Kidero, stem financial hemorrhage, forestall the collapse of services, and to maintain accurate and proper records of the county government.”
“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.
