The Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) has handed over four critical functions that it was in charge of for two years and seven months to Governor Johnson Sakaja adminstration.
The functions include planning and development; transport, public works and utilities; health, environment, water, sanitation and energy and ancillary services.
NMS was formed after signing of a Deed of Transfer of functions from the county to the national government involving the Ministry of Devolution and former Governor Mike Sonko.
The services were reverted back to the county on Friday in an event attended by NMS Director General Mohammed Badi, Attorney General Kihara Kariuki, Outgoing Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa and State House Controller Kinuthia Mbugua.
Mr Badi said NMS had over the years built extra hospital wards, roads and drilled boreholes in informal settlements.
Governor Sakaja assured the staffers at the City Council that their jobs would be reinstated.
“We will focus on building a cleaner city for our residents,” he said.
