This is according to a Kenya Gazette notice signed by Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa and published by the acting Nairobi City County Secretary Dr Jairus Musumba.
“Further to Article 9 .1 of the Deed of Transfer of Functions, the duration of the transferred functions is extended by a further period of six (6) months from 25th February 2022 to 24th August 2022,” read part of the gazette notice.
