Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi has accused embattled governor Mike Sonko of sabotaging the Nairobi County take over by the State.

Speaking at the Kenya School of Government, Elachi accused Sonko of using proxies to halt the process through court.

"The deal between the State and county government is good for Nairobians and Sonko too, he should not go behind the scenes and try to sabotage it," she said.

She also said Sonko has gone gainst the terms and conditions of the deal by advertising waiver of licenses.

"The deal ties Sonko and State from doing anything for 21 days but on his part he is up and running," Elachi added.

Elachi has also accused Senate of hijacking the county take over after failing to intervene and tame the governor when he was running rogue.
