Sonko and Badi end differences; vows to work together for the people of Nairobi

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko and Nairobi Metropolitan Services Director General Mohammed Badi have on Wednesday August 12 ended their differences and vowed to work together towards the development of the City County.

Sonko has since apologized to Badi and stated that their new working relationship is geared towards delivering quality services to the people of Nairobi

The truce was brokered after both leaders met with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The two addressed the media after a function at KICC officiated by President Kenyatta who was handing over title deeds to Nairobi residents.

Sonko stated that he had been misled by politicians who fueled negative perceptions about the NMS boss.

“All the insults and bad things I have said to Badi I apologize and now moving forward we are going to work together. …Our main aim now is development and going forward we will work together to serve the people of Nairobi”, Sonko stated

Badi said he had put behind the differences that had transpired between him and the governor and assured Sonko of a good working relationship.

“There is no hate between us and as you have heard our interest is to deliver services to the people of Nairobi and bring development”, Badi stated.

The NMS boss affirmed that he will be seen more often with Sonko and the two will together launch the Michuki Park on Friday.

“Moving forward we will be on the ground together and that is what is expected of us to bring development in Nairobi”, he said.

The end of the fued between the two leaders in charge of the capital comes just a day after Beatrice Elachi resigned from her position as Nairobi County Assembly Speaker

Elachi on Tuesday said she was moving on to a new season in her political career and journey and going back to Dagoretti North constituents.
