The committee co-chaired by Tourism Cabinet secretary Najib Balala and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko said the first 30 days of the initiative, which expired yesterday, has borne fruit with a lot happening behind the scenes.

He defended Miguna, saying, "he meets all the requirements provided for in the constitution, the Leadership and Integrity Act, the Elections Act and the County Government Act".

Miguna Miguna is expected to undergo a full vetting process and approval by the County Assembly for the post that has been a lacuna for months now since the resignation of technocrat Polycarp Igathe.

In an interview with a local broadcaster, Governor Sonko admitted that garbage collection was a menace in the city and that he went to the UAE capital to explore garbage collection and recycling options.

Laywer Nelson Havi tweeted, "On the Miguna Miguna nomination as Deputy Governor of Nairobi, the stone the builder refused has turned out to be the building block!"

Speaking to the Standard Digital, an official that sought anonymity, as he was not authorised to speak on behalf of City Hall, said Governor Sonko's signature on the letter was a forgery.

"Pursuant to the Supreme Court Advisory Opinion in Reference 1 of 2015, I hereby nominate Hon".

In a letter doing the rounds on social media, controversial governor of Nairobi, Mike Sonko, writes to the speaker of the county assembly, asking that Miguna is vetted and approved for the position.

Before working as Nairobi's Deputy Governor, Igathe was the Managing director at Vivo Energy.

Miguna Miguna's appointment comes less than a week after Polycarp Igathe landed a top job at Equity Bank.

In recent weeks, activists and County Assembly Members allied to the Opposition have been exerting pressure on Sonko to nominate a deputy.
