Nairobi County Functions: PSCU: In a landmark agreement signed at State House Tuesday, Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko, Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa and President Uhuru Kenyatta, signed a deal, handing over functions of the Nairobi County government to the national government, pursuant to Article 187 of the Constitution.

The signing of the agreement was also witnessed by the Speaker of the Senate Kenneth Lusaka and the Attorney General Paul Kihara.

According to the Constitution, 1) A function or power of government at one level may be transferred to a government at the other level by agreement between the governments if:

(a) the function or power would be more effectively performed or exercised by the receiving government; and(b) the transfer of the function or power is not prohibited by the legislation under which it is to be performed or exercised.

The move comes amidst an impeachment move that has been moved against Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.

It nonetheless does not come as a surprise, given that there have been calls for the county to revert back to the national government. Since 2013, the capital city has suffered the misfortune of poor services, mismanagement, and plundering of public resources.
