City Hall nominee for chief finance officer admitted to lacking experience for the job and struggled with basic accounting terms during vetting.

Mary Nyambura Maina was taken to task to explain how she will preside over City Hall’s budget that runs into billions of shillings despite never having handled a budget of Sh1 million.

She said she supervises two clerks on her present job at Kenya Power.

“As much as I do not have the experience, I will follow the laid down rules. I plan to immerse myself into the job and learn in the process,” she said on Wednesday while appearing before Nairobi County Assembly’s Finance, Budget and Appropriation Committee.
