Reasons why Polycarp Igathe Resigned

Igathe gives his reasons why he resigned only 5 months into his tenure

He revealed that among the things that led to him resigning is lack of trust between him and Governor Mike Sonko.

Igathe claimed that he has failed to earn the trust of Governor Mike Sonko to enable him serve the people of Nairobi as promised during campaigns.

“Dear Nairobians, it is with a heavy heart that I resign my seat as elected Deputy Governor of Nairobi City County effective 1pm on 31st Jan 2018.” Read his letter.

“I regret I have failed to earn the trust of the Governor to enable me to drive Admin & Management of the county. Without fear, favor or ill will I step down to avoid abusing or betraying my oath of office to Kenyans, Nairobians and my family. Thank you for the encouraging support given to me so far,” he said in a post on his Twitter account.
