The Governor of Nairobi Honourable Ann Kananu has reshuffled her cabinet. According to reports, Joseph Gathiaka has been chosen as the new Chief Finance Officer of Nairobi County, replacing Mohamed Sahal. Sahal has been moved to the health department.

Among other changes done by the Governor include making Brian Kisali as the Chief Officer for Disaster Management in the County. Elizabeth Njau was also given the role of Chief Officer in the Trade department.
According to reports, there were complaints concerning financial issues in the county which prompted the move by Governor Kananu.
