Nairobi Deputy Governor Ann Mwenda Kananu has today been sworn in as the third Governor of Nairobi County.
Kananu took the oath of office presided by Judge Lillian Mutende at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre in Nairobi.
The governor expressed her commitment and enthused that she is up to the task to serve the people of Nairobi to the best of her ability.
To ensure that the Nairobi county is effectively functional, the governor promised to work in collaboration and in harmony with the national government, the NMS, the Nairobi County Assembly, business entities and the Nairobians to ensure there is quality delivery of service in the county.
In attendance were Cabinet Secretary for Public Service and Gender Margaret Kobia, Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi, the chair of the Council of Governors Martin Wambora, Director-General Nairobi Metropolitan Services General Mohammed Badi, members of parliament and the leadership of the county assembly led by the speaker and the members of the county assembly.
Kananu has been acting as the Nairobi governor since the impeachment of former governor Mike Sonko in December 2020.
On November 9, a five -judge bench in the Supreme court dismissed a petition by former governor Sonko challenging the swearing-in of Kananu as the next county governor. The court ruling paved way for the swearing-in of Kananu as the next governor.
