Governor Sonko Caves In, Approves Sh3.5Bn To NMS

Published

Nairobi County boss Mike Sonko on Wednesday assented to the Sh3.5 billion supplementary budget to fund the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) operations.

This follows the passing of the Nairobi City County Supplementary Appropriation Bill, 2020, on June 2, by the County Assembly, bringing to an end the stand-off that started in April.

In the current budget, the NMS has been allocated Sh2.25 billion for recurrent expenditure and Sh1.25 billion for development for the period ending on June 30, 2020.

Earlier in mid April, Sonko had refused to Nairobi County’s Sh15 billion budget, denying NMS funds needed for city operations.

The move opened a battlefront between Sonko and Maj-Gen Mohammed Badi who head the NMS, the authority tasked with the four dockets the governor handed over to the national government.
