The National Government therefore, will take over County Health services, County Transport services, County Public Works, Utilities and Ancillary services and County Government Planning and Development.

Sonko is facing corruption charges and is out on Ksh15 million bail. He was in December barred from accessing his office after he was charged with 19 counts of misappropriating Ksh357 million from county coffers.

Nairobi MCA were planning to table an impeachment motion next week, but it is now not clear how the cards will play.
