Badi summoned by Uhuru for clashing with Governor Sonko

There seems to be an unending feud between Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) boss, General Mohamed Badi, and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

For this reason, President Uhuru Kenyatta summoned the NMS boss.The President wanted him to explain what was going on.

Ever since February,2020 when NMS started handling issues in Nairobi county, peace has not prevailed between the governor and the general. The two clash over projects in the county.

Additionally, Sonko has severally questioned the legality of the Nairobi Metropolitan Services.

“By not complying with the law then they better impeach me just like Waititu. However, I will not entertain his (Badi) intimidation anymore,” Sonko once said.

For some reason, the two leaders have divided City Hall. On Tuesday 28th July, section of MCAs got involved in a shootout. They all wanted control of the National Assembly. Most of the MCAs wanted to impeach Speaker Beatrice Elachi.

Appearance

After receiving the summons from the Head of State, General Badi appeared before the National Security Council.

The National Security Council is a top security organ in the country. President Uhuru Kenyatta chairs the Council.

The Council has several members including Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, PS Karanja Kibicho, and Kenya Defence Forces Chief General Robert Kibochi.

PS Karanja Kibicho noted that they need to control the situation. He pointed out that the MCAs have become unruly, and the National Security Council should do something about it.

“When you take a look at the ceiling at City Hall, one may think it was a battlefield due to bullet marks. This is irresponsible use of firearms. This was part of the agenda discussed in the meeting. What if they killed each other in the shootout?” Karanja Kibicho asked.

After the shootout, Interior CS Fred Matiang’i ordered the Inspector General of Police to construct a police station at City Hall. Additionally, he ordered withdrawal of gun licenses of 14 MCAs.
