The Kiambu Governor has been accused of siphoning billions of money during his short and disgraced reign in Kiambu county.

In a Gazette Notice dated December 2, 2022, President Ruto said the Nairobi Rivers Commission has been tasked to reclaim the rivers of Nairobi as a spine to the city’s blue and green infrastructure for a better urban environment and quality of life.

The Commission members shall hold office for a term of three years renewable once based on performance.
