Embakasi North Member of Parliament Hon. James Gakuya and Governance Expert Eng. Alex Mwathi while speaking on TV 47, have supported the Nairobi Governor Hon. Johnson Sakaja amid his cold war with Deputy President Rigithi Gachagua.
Eng. Mwathi stated that Sakaja is not answerable to Gachagua or President William Ruto according to the law, but he is answerable to the Members of the County Assembly. He added that, Sakaja is bringing changes people never saw coming, hinting out he wants the City to be organized.
“As the governor of Nairobi, Sakaja does not answer to the Deputy President or President. He only answers to the MCAs. Change is painful and if the people of Nairobi has felt they need change in transport, the governor has a reasonability to bring order to that,” he said.
On his end, Gakuya noted that, Sakaja will not make to bring the changes he need to Nairobi allow, he needs to be supported by all the stakeholders to achieve his objectives. He called upon Sakaja to allow the public participation if he want his to run Nairobi easily.
He further noted that, the people of Nairobi are lucky their governor is under the Azimio La Umoja government. He stated that, Sakaja should be considerate on how he will work with his boss, Gachagua, adding that the matter at hand is nothing big that cannot be solved by the two.
“We are lucky the City (Nairobi) is not under an Azimio governor. The issue between Gachagua and Sakaja is a small monster. Gachagua has every right to speak on the matter. I`ll just urge the governor that the deputy president is his boss,” the Embakasi North MP said.
