Governor Sakaja gazettes first sitting of Nairobi MCAs

Nairobi Members of County Assembly will be the last to take oath of office after Governor Johnson Sakaja gazetted the first sitting on Thursday, next week.

The gazettement comes a day after he held a meeting with Azimio La Umoja affiliated MCAs.

Questions had been raised on why Nairobi was yet to gazette the swearing-in, alongside other counties.

It was claimed that the delay was to influence the voting pattern for the speaker.

The swearing in event will see 124 MCAs, 85 elected and 39 nominated, take oath of office, making up the beginning of the city’s third county assembly.

UDA has 35 MCAs, ODM has 35, Jubilee six, Wiper four, CCM one and Independent MCAs are three. Utawala ward is yet to hold elections.

The first sitting is important because after taking their oath, they will elect the speaker and his deputy.
