Nairobi Metropolitan Services Major General Mohamed Badi has handed over 4 key functions to Nairobi county Governor Johnson Sakaja.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, Badi highlighted his achievements in extending level 2 and 3 health facilities across marginalized and informal settlements in Nairobi.
“We have also facilitated the additional facilities at Mama Lucy Hospital and extra wards dedicated for Covid,” Badi said.

Governor Sakaja signed the deed of transfer of the functions at City Hall urging his staff to work together with the NMS county officials as they are now under one body.
“I want to urge my staff in Nairobi County Government and those who are coming back, that you are all now one. There is no former NMS staff and former county government staff. You are all staff of the Nairobi County Government.” Sakaja reiterated.
Sakaja has also assured the nurses that they are needed to serve the people.
Also present at the ceremony was devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, who delighted in reverting the functions, stating he authorized the move.
