Opposition MCAs have given Governor Mike Sonko seven days to nominate Deputy Governor or he faces legal action.
The ward representatives led by Minority Chief Whip Peter Imwatok argued that the county is in a “mess” because the governor lacks a deputy to advise him.
“We are seeing how the county is, garbage everywhere, roads are pathetic and all these blames are directed at the governor. He needs a deputy to advise him and also do some of these jobs, especially supervisory,” Imwatok told a press conference at City Hall on Monday.
Sonko found himself without a deputy following dramatic resignation of Polycarp Igathe in January.
On March 9, the Supreme Court gave an advisory to Sonko and his Nyeri counterpart Mutahi Kahiga to nominate deputies.
Kahiga became the governor following the death of Governor Wahome Gakuru.
