Nairobi County Assembly has approved the appointment of Anne Kananu as the Deputy Governor, she is now set to be the next Governor of the city county.

This is despite questions on the legality of the entire process.

As it stands, the planned by-election will not be taking place.

While being vetted for the position earlier today, Anne said she will support and work with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services team headed by Maj. Gen. (Rtd.) Mohammed Badi.

She added that unlike former Governor Mike Sonko, when she becomes governor, she will work with the General Badi-led agency to improve service delivery in the city.

“I will work together with NMS to make sure whatever plans are put in place are accomplished.”

Kananu who was nominated as deputy governor by Sonko was vetted at City Hall early today after the court threw out an application by Sonko to stop the exercise and subsequent swearing-in of Kananu as Deputy Governor.

This was despite a spirited fight to erect a hurdle against the process.

The court on Friday dismissed an application by activist Okiya Omtatah to halt the exercise.

The Nairobi Deputy Governor seat fell vacant following the resignation of Polycarp Igathe in January 2018.
