Following the resignation of Polycap Igathe as the Nairobi County’s Deputy Governor, Governor Mike Sonko has forwarded Lawyer Miguna Miguna as his nominee for the same position.
In a letter to the speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly, Hon Beatrice Elachi, the Nairobi County boss proposed the controversial lawyer for his deputy.
“In regards to Supreme Court advisory in regard to the appointment of a Deputy Governor, upon the seat falling vacant, I hereby forward my nominee, Lawyer Miguna Miguna to undergo full vetting process and approval by the county Assembly for the position of Deputy Governor.. “ read the letter dated Wednesday,May 16.
Sonko further noted that lawyer Miguna Miguna, whose return to the country was postponed to a later date, meets all the requirements provided for in the constitution and thus a perfect replacement for Igathe.
This comes at a time when the Nairobi’s opposition MCAs were mounting pressure on the governor, having given him a one-week ultimatum to appoint a new Deputy Governor.
Igathe on the other hand is alleged to be joining Equity Bank as the new Chief Commercial Officer, alongside Christine Brown, the new company secretary.
