sonkoTwo Nairobi city council officials were on Thursday sent on compulsory leave for allegedly trying to sabotage Governor Mike Sonko’s government.

Leboo ole Morintat, acting county secretary said that the two; Albert Kipkoech and Chrispine┬áCaleb allowed hawckers to block shops in Nairobi’s CBD.

Mr Morintat said that this was during Kipkoech and Caleb’s tenure as acting operations director and acting deputy respectively.

“You are hereby instructed to proceed on compulsory leave with immediate effect and not later than┬áNovember 2 until you are recalled,” the letter read in part.

Taking over from Kipkoech is Peter Mbaya, the senior inspector at the city hall who will also take disciplinary actions against workers.

“You will monitor and plan operations in the 17 sub-counties, prepare the department’s operations and enforce laws within all the sub-counties,” he said.

 

The governor has said that he will re-organize the hawkers and bring order to the city.

Hawkers will before the end of the year 2017 be identified, registered and incensed before being allocated space within the city.
