NMS Hands Over Functions To Nairobi County


The Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) on Friday handed over its functions back to the Nairobi county government.

During the ceremony, Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja and the NMS Director General Lieutenant Mohamed Badi signed a deed of transfer.

Speaking during the event, Badi assured Governor Sakaja of his full support in a bid to achieve the aspirations of the people of Nairobi and Kenya at large.

“As I pass the baton to the governor, I remain devoted to supporting the county government in the execution of its mandate and realization of the aspirations of the people of Nairobi and Kenya at large,” said General Badi.

Further, he thanked governor Sakaja for being part of what NMS has achieved during the two years which came to an end on Friday morning.

Governor Sakaja on the other hand lauded the NMS for what they had achieved despite the challenge.

“I really want to honor the NMS and the staff there. You did a good job despite the challenges which I know were a lot,” said the Nairobi governor.

He assured the NMS and county staff of equal treatment during their duties at the county government.

 There are no former NMS staff and no former county government staff. You are all staff of the County and you will work together as equals,” he said.

The functions handed over include health, transport, and ancillary services as well as projects involving Nairobi’s public works, physical planning, and development.
