    The General was commended for his exemplary leadership and devotion to transforming the lives of Nairobi residents. 

    “As I pass on the baton to His Excellency Governor Johnson Sakaja, I remain devoted to supporting the county government in the execution of its mandate in the realization of the aspirations of the people of Nairobi and Kenyans at large,” Badi remarked during the handover ceremony. 

    Additionally, the General went ahead to highlight key milestones NMS achieved under his watch. 

    “Looking back, it has been a rigorous and remarkable two years culminating to this very moment as we officially handover transferred functions back to the county government,” he noted.

    Some of the achievements include the rehabilitation of Michuki Park, Uhuru Park, and Central Park, the construction of roads and hospitals and garbage collection. 

    Sakaja pledged to work with NMS staff to enhance better service delivery. He also hinted at signing a memorandum of understanding with the military to aid him in securing his legacy. 

    "I want to honour NMS. You did a good job despite the challenges, but we still need your help," Sakaja stated.
