Nairobi Deputy Governor Anne Kananu is set to hold her first cabinet meeting today ahead of a joint session with the Nairobi Metropolitan Services(NMS) to plan for seamless operations in the capital.

The cabinet meeting will be the first in more than a year since former Governor Mike Sonko held the last one in 2019 before he was barred from accessing his City Hall office by court.

The meeting comes just over a week after Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Benson Mutura handed over the reins of City Hall to Ms Kananu, ending his stint as acting governor.

“We have been told there will be a cabinet meeting on Tuesday at City Hall but the official invitation and the agenda will be communicated later in the day,” said Health Services CEC Hitan Majevdia.

The cabinet will then retreat to Mombasa on Wednesday for a strategy meeting with the NMS team on how to streamline services in the city. This follows a similar meeting between NMS and Nairobi County Assembly in Mombasa last week over the state of the county.

“We will be travelling to Mombasa after the meeting to meet NMS guys. The meeting will revolve around how best we can collaborate in service delivery in the city, issues around the transferred functions and other teething problems currently facing the county,” said Mr Majevdia.
