President Uhuru Kenyatta has allegedly included newly appointed Nairobi boss Major General Mohamed Badi to his cabinet.
Speaking through her fresh court papers, Kandara MP Alice Wahome on Tuesday Sept 15th argued that there were serious constitutional and governance issues that in Nairobi County required urgent attention from courts.
“That this petition contains very serious issues surrounding the establishment of a government and its organs in a manner other than as provided for in the constitution,” reads an excerpt of the petition.
The legislator who has sued the Head of State over the matter, listed the Attorney general, secretary to the cabinet and Major Mohammed Badi as main respondents to the suit which is calling upon courts to stop Badi from setting his foot in any cabinet meeting.
Just a few days ago, President Uhuru Kenyatta presided over oath taking ceremony of Mr. Badi which then allowed him to be part of State House meetings.
The said oath is part of the requirements one has to meet to be able to take part in any cabinet meeting.
“The Ceremony conducted by the Head of the Public Service was a precursor to the Cabinet Meeting held at State House, Nairobi on this Tenth Day of September the Year of our Lord Two Thousand and Twenty,” reads an excerpt of the statement sent to newsrooms by State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena last Thursday, September 10.
Badi took over leadership of Nairobi in March 2020 when he was assigned main functions leaving minor duties to Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
The NSM has since then been making milestones in developing the city and addressing all the loopholes that have been affecting city dwellers.
Nairobians have been seeing major infrastructure improvements and other social amenities with the president having been on record to laud the take over as a blessing.
