The lunch meet between the two comes a day after Sakaja as well as his Deputy Governor Njoroge Muchiri met with Members of Nairobi County Assembly affiliated with Kenya Kwanza.

"DG and I held our inaugural Nairobi caucus meeting with Kenya Kwanza MCAs. We commit to deliver to you a city of order and dignity; hope and opportunity for all. We shall deliver on all the promises we made to you," revealed Sakaja.

Sakaja acknowledged his predecessors saying that he understood the challenges they faced and was going to learn from them.

The governor elect once again promised to revert the responsibilities which have been transferred to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) back to the county government.

“I want to affirm that from the day we are sworn all the functions of the county government under the fourth schedule shall be reverted to the county government,” Sakaja stated.
