Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko told members of his cabinet to uphold integrity and deliver services to city residents with diligence and commitment.
Mr Sonko spoke at the swearing-in ceremony of his team on Friday at Charter Hall, a day after they were unanimously approved by the county Assembly.
The 10 county executive committee members also signed the General Leadership and Integrity Code, with Mr Sonko cautioning that he will not condone corruption in his administration.
The governor said the new team was competent and he was confident it would push his administration’s development agenda forward and help to implement policies that will improve service delivery and uplift the living standards of residents.
The governor urged the executives to use their time and energy to reclaim Nairobi’s lost glory, saying they had inherited a city in a terrible state where corruption cartels controlled key departments such as those of revenue, rates and legal.
“As we congratulate you on your appointments to various portfolios, we must, however, face the reality that the road ahead is challenging but also full of opportunities,” he told the team at a ceremony attended by close family members and Speaker Beatrice Elachi.
Among those sworn in was Mr Hitan Majevda who will hold the Health services docket.
