Sonko to meet NMS boss General Badi over disputes

Nairobi governor Mike Sonko and Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) boos General Badi is set to have a sitdown to resolve their ongoing disputes.

The two will meet alongside an arbitrator who will help in resolving their disputes.

The two have been engaging in pubic disputes, with each side wanting to lead Nairobi. They were clashing over who will oversee the city’s projects and the Nairobi County Assembly.

Consequently, government officials forwarded the case to the Intergovernmental Relations Technical Committee (IGRTC).

IGRTC acting chairperson John Burugu also confirmed the arbitration on Thursday the 6th of August 2020. He further added that the two leaders would discuss and resolve their issue, which is affecting service delivery in Nairobi.

Burugu however, declined to give further details regarding the matter. According to him, the issue is before the summit and the Council of Governors.

“I am aware that a notice of declaration of the dispute by the Nairobi governor over the city operations has been referred to our committee, but it is something that I wouldn’t want to talk about now because consultations with the Summit and Council of Governors are ongoing,” he said.

The two groups are still discussing on the date Badi and Sonko will meet.

Intervention by other leaders.

President Uhuru Kenyatta intervened in the matter by calling General Badi for a meeting over the ongoing dispute.

On the other hand, governor Sonko appealed to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Chief Justice Maraga, and the senate to intervene.

“My humble appeal now goes to the Honourable Chief Justice, the Senate and Raila Odinga as great defenders of devolution in this country. We need your urgent intervention and rich wisdom in this crisis before the county cripples down and is taken away by selfish individuals.”

The meeting may be a tough one with the leaders not seeing eye to eye. The Attorney General, IGRTC, CoG, NMS team, and Nairobi City Council team will be the mediators,
