Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) Director General Maj. Gen. Mohammed Badi has said that they will start the process of handing over to the county government from next week.
Speaking on Thursday during the inauguration of Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja, Badi said that NMS had completed all the tasks it had been given.
Badi further stated that since the creation of NMS, he had a good relationship with Sakaja, who was then the Senator for Nairobi.
He said that the Sakaja supported NMS to execute its mandate as he congratulated him on his new role as the Governor of Kenya’s capital.
“Since the creation of NMS, Sakaja has been a backbone of helping NMS achieve its target. Today I say congratulations, your excellency. NMS was created for a specific mandate and I’m very happy to report that NMS has accomplished all the tasks it was given to do within the two years.
“We will start the process of handing over from next week and as we wind up as NMS going back to various ministries and some of the staff returning to the county, I would like to pledge our support to the governor,” Badi stated.
He said that he will hand over the unfinished projects to the new governor maintaining that he will be available to work with the county boss.
NMS took over major functions of Nairobi County in March 2020 in a transfer deed signed at State House Nairobi in the presence of President Uhuru Kenyatta and then Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.
