Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has lauded residents for what he termed as passionate ward representatives.

Taking to his official Twitter account, Sakaja who held a meeting with a section of Members of County Assembly (MCAs) in Mombasa noted that the newly elected representatives were passionate about making a difference.

"My people of Nairobi, you chose well. These MCAs are really passionate about making a difference," he wrote.

"We shall work together and make Nairobi a city of order, dignity, hope and opportunity for all. Let’s make Nairobi Work. Asanteni sana," he said.

The meeting held at a Mombasa hotel was meant to strategise on the election of the new speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly.

Ward representatives allied to the Azimio la Umoja -One Kenya coalition skipped the meeting citing pending determination of the Presidential petition set for Monday, September 5, 2022.

"We are still in court challenging presidential results and we have no time to discuss issues of assembly Speaker. He can do that with his UDA team," Makongeni MCA Peter Imwatok stated.
