BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,13TH JAN 2018-Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has reacted to Polycarp Igathe’s abrupt resignation as Nairobi Deputy Governor.
According to a statement from Mr Sonko’s office on Friday evening, the Governor acknowledged the receipt of Mr Igathe’s resignation letter.
He stated he would address the public at a later date in view of the unexpected turn of events. “The Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has received a letter of resignation from Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe.
The Governor is considering the letter and will issue a comprehensive statement later,” the statement read. Igathe resigned, citing frustrations because he ‘failed to earn the Governor’s trust’, in what is blamed on strained working relationship with Sonko. “
Dear Nairobians, it is with a heavy heart that I resign my seat as elected Deputy Governor of Nairobi City County effective 1pm on 31st Jan 2018. I regret I have failed to earn the trust of the Governor to enable me to drive Admin & Management of the county,” he posted on his Twitter account. “Without fear, favour or ill will I step down to avoid abusing or betraying my oath of office to Kenyans, Nairobians & my family.
Thank you for the encouraging support given to me so far,” he added.
