MCAs accuse Sakaja of paying lip service
Rivalry between Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja and the county assembly escalated yesterday after the ward reps asked the county chief to stop the many boardroom meetings and start delivering for city residents.
Led by Minority leader Anthony Kiragu, the MCAs faulted Sakaja for his continuous boardroom engagements, saying it’s now time to move to the ground and work for the people.
“When will we ever see him on the ground performing? He is always busy in the office meeting different people. We are telling him that he is overdoing the boardrooms and we want to see real work on ground. People want to see roads, water and other projects being implemented,” he said.
Kiragu took a swipe at Sakaja’s model of operations warning that if he is not careful he would end up not delivering anything for the city residents.
He also castigated Sakaja over disbursement of executive bursaries, saying he should stop giving them to churches but rather to informal settlement needy students.
“Why take bursaries to churches, yet those students who need bursaries are in slums? Sakaja should stop his sideshows and get down to work,” he said.
