Anne Kananu Mwenda The New Deputy Governor in four hours.


Anne Kananu walked into the Nairobi county assembly chambers as an ordinary citizen and walked out as deputy governor.

Questions have been raised on the constitutionality of her swearing in as deputy governor.

Kananu, speaking after her swearing in at KICC, thanked the Jubilee party and committed to work with the county assembly.

“Together we shall be strong and manage the county better,” she said in the ceremony attended by NMS director general Mohammed Badi.

Nairobi county assembly had approved Anne Kananu’s nomination as deputy governor following successful vetting earlier in the day.

She was set to be sworn in at the KICC. This come even as activist Okiya Omtatah filed a notice to appeal the decision okaying the vetting of Anne Kananu as another petitioner filed a complaint against Justice Anthony Mrima.

The MCAs, when debating on her suitability to hold the post, said Kananu had proven integrity seeing as her three years at the county’s Disaster and Emergency Management as well as the Water dockets have not been marred by queries.

Kananu who was nominated as deputy governor by Sonko was vetted at City Hall early after the court threw out an application by Sonko to stop the exercise and subsequent swearing-in of Kananu as Deputy Governor.
