Sonko's officers issued with warning over ignoring summons

Heed this or face the consequences

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko

Nairobi County Assembly Majority Leader Abdi Guyo on Tuesday warned County Executives Committees officers that action will be taken over failure to honor their summons.

Guyo, who spoke during a stakeholders meeting, stated that failure of the officers to attend the summons would result to the loss of their jobs.

“This time round we mean business; if an official doesn’t honour a committee summon we will use the powers given to us by the County Government Act and send some of these CECs and Chief Officers home,” remarked Guyo.

Waithera Chege, who is the Majority Whip, echoed the warning by Guyo and further pointed out that the behavior exhibited by some of the officers affected the work being done by the assembly.

“We have had a very hard time in committees.

“A CEC member completely ignores our invites without an explanation which makes it hard for us to transact,” explained Chege.

CECs risk impeachment

In 2018, four CECs had been at risk of being impeached by MCAs over claims of persistently ignoring summons.

The four were: Finance and Economic Planning CEC Allan Igambi, Roads and Infrastructure executive Mohammed Dagane, Environment and Natural Resource CEC Larry Wambua and Lands executive Charles Kerich.

The officers had been accused of failing to honor a bidding to appear before the select committee, whose had the mandate to scrutinize resolutions of the county assembly including adopted committee reports, petitions and undertakings given by county executives.
