NMS hands over all its functions to Nairobi County
The Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) has handed over all its functions back to the County Government of Nairobi.
This followed the signing of a deed of transfer between the NMS Director General Mohammed Badi and Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja on Friday.
These functions include health, transport, planning and management, and public works and ancillary services.
NMS was conceived in March 2020 to run the transferred functions with an annual budget of Ksh.27 billion for a period of two years.
It was playing the functions as a department under the national government on behalf of the County. It had denied considerable power from future governors of the city county.
In February 2020, the ousted Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko surrendered Health, Transport, Public works and Planning and Development Services to the National Government at State house, Nairobi.
