In a letter from the  County Secretary and Head of County Public Service Peter Kariuki, Ms. Kangogo reportedly disobeyed orders given by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko against a trip to the United States.

"It has come to the attention of this office that you travelled to the United States of America on 1st June, 2018 having received express instructions from H.E the Governor not to proceed on the trip prior to departure ," read the letter.

Ms. Kangogo is expected to step aside from her duties following her misconduct.
