The Nairobi Metropolitan Services Director General Mohamed Badi on Friday morning handed over functions back to Nairobi County.
In a colourful ceremony at City Hall, the unit concluded its mandate following the signing of a deed of transfer between Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja and the NMS Director General.
NMS handed over four functions which include; transport, health, planning and management and public works and ancillary services.
During the event, the NMS Director General assured Governor Sakaja of his support in the execution of his mandate in order to realise the aspirations of the people of Nairobi and Kenya at large.
“As I pass the baton to the governor, I remain devoted to supporting the county government in the execution of its mandate and realisation of the aspirations of the people of Nairobi and Kenya at large,” said General Badi.
He noted that during its two-year reign NMS accomplished all the tasks given to do that resulted in tangible outcomes that its residents can attest.
“NMS has performed its tasks quite well across the four transferred functions in accordance with County integrated development plans resulting in tangible positive outcomes that many Nairobi residents can attest to,” he added.
“I would like to thank Governor Sakaja for helping us guide NMS to what we have achieved today. It has been a rigorous and remarkable two years culminating to this very moment as we officially handover the transferred functions back to the County Government,” he said.
On his part, Governor Sakaja assured all NMS staff that they would be incorporated into the County Government.
“There is no former NMS staff or former county gov’t staff, you are all staff of the Nairobi County gov’t and you will work together as equals. We will have space for everybody,” said Sakaja.
