07 October 2014, 15:59
Nairobi – Nairobi Governor, Evans Kidero has reshuffled the County’s Executive Committee, a move he says will ensure optimization and acceleration of service provision to city residents.
Some of Kidero’s cabinet changes include the appointment of the former Agriculture, Fisheries and Livestock executive secretary, Anne Lokidor to the Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) docket, while Mohamed Abdullahi was moved from ICT to Roads, Transport and Public Works ministry which was headed by Evans Ondieki who was moved to Environment, Natural Resources, Water and Energy.
However, some Executive Secretaries such as Anne Othoro (Trade, Industrialization, Tourism & Cooperative Development) and Greggory Mwakanongo (Lands, Housing & Physical Planning and Finance & Economic Planning) were retained in their dockets.
During the reshuffling exercise, Kidero announced the resignation of two County Executive Secretaries who included John Gakuo (Water, Environment, Energy and Natural Resources) and Timothy King'ondu (Health).

“The search for their replacements is currently underway. Appointments to the positions will be taken to the County Assembly for vetting. In the interim, the Executive Secretaries, Christopher Khaemba (Education) and Mercy Kamau (Public Service Management) will be the acting CECM’s for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Development and Health Services respectively,” said Kidero.
He revealed that his government’s operations have continually been frustrated by lack of funds due to huge debts inherited from the defunct City Council.
“I will expect that we develop innovative instruments for debt resolution and release revenue generated for implementation of projects,” said Kidero.
