  • Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, on Wednesday, responded to a man who applied for the deputy governor position via an advertisement on the Daily Nation.

    Via his social media, the county head thanked the Nairobi resident, Philip Sagoti Chepsat, for his expression of interest in serving in his government.

    "My office received your earlier communications and we were in the process of writing you a formal regret because like I promised, I shall only be ready to fill the Deputy Governor position once the legislation pending in Parliament on nomination and appointment of Deputy Governor is assented into law," he explained.

    He further detailed that he had made a promise to nominate a woman to the position.

    "Too bad you are not a woman because I intend to keep that promise to my women supporters at all costs because I believe in not only upholding the third gender rule but exceeding it. This is why half of Nairobi County executive members are women," Sonko added.

    The governor regretted that the applicant hadn't indicated his background or work experience for him to take action and assist him.

    "My appeal to you is not to give up on your dream to serve in the leadership of Nairobi County but to keep checking up and applying as vacancies come up," he explained.

    Sonko disclosed that there were vacancies coming up in his administration as he would be firing several non-performing Members of County Executive Committee and Chief Officers who were sleeping on the job.

    and you should be on the standby to apply when the County Public Service Board advertises to fill the position.

    "Otherwise, I wish you all the best in your future endeavours as you continue to enjoy our services as a Nairobi voter and resident," the governor concluded.
