MCAs warned Sonko that failure to do this will result in serious repercussions

Sonko shifted most of his meetings to his home in Mua Hills after his security detail was reduced

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been given two weeks to move back to his county office.

Through Majority leader Abdi Guyo, MCAs warned Sonko that failure to do this will result in serious repercussions.

They further added that the governor was elected in Nairobi so it beats logic to operate from the comfort of his Mua residence in Machakos.


"We have resolved that we want Governor Sonko back at his City Hall office.

“City Hall is gazetted as the Nairobi County headquarters and we cannot have a governor running our affairs from another county," Guyo said.

In response, Sonko, through his Communication Director Elkana Jacob, noted that his boss has been operating from the CBD and the MCA’s are bitter because all corruption loopholes have been sealed.

"The Governor has been operating from his office in Nairobi. The MCA's are just bitter because he (Sonko) has sealed all corruption loopholes," Elkana said.

Sonko shifted most of his meetings to his home in Mua Hills after his security detail was reduced from 15 bodyguards to four.

He even held a meeting in May this year and Machakos governor Alfred Mutua made fun of him saying they could have joint sessions.

“Where we are, we want to be able to work together in a stable country. It is good to see my county is being used by more than just myself to run a government.

“I also want to welcome the Members of Nairobi and Machakos County Assemblies to come there and we hold some of our sessions together,” he said.
