Nairobi County Governor-elect Mike Sonko has spelt out conditions for handing over of office to him by outgoing governor Evans Kidero.
In a letter, Sonkohas directed Kidero against entering in any contract with any third party on behalf of the County government and further refrain from withdrawing any cash from the county government kitty.
“You do not withdraw any funds from the Nairobi County Account with the Central Bank,” said Mr Sonko in a letter drafted by his lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui.
Sonko further threatened to move to court, should a transition team fail to be formed by end of business Tuesday. Sonko demanded that the transition committee comprise three members from both sides.
“In the result, it is necessary to ensure a smooth transition of the reigns of power in the Nairobi City County from yourself, stem financial hemorrhage, forestall collapse of services and above all maintain accurate and proper records of county government,” read the letter in parts.
He further wants Kidero not to remove “any materials from City Hall or any other county office items of, and concerning the county including documents without consulting his three people yet to be appointed for the committee.”
Sonko also asked Kidero to reveal to the translation team of any emergency issue that require immediate attention of the Governor-elect.
