Speaking after the announcement, Kananu promised to work together with Nairobi Metropolitan Services to ensure seamless delivery of services in Nairobi.
She continued by noting that the woes surrounding Nairobi are as a result of poor governance left behind by ousted Governor Mike Sonko.
Unlike Sonko, Anne Kananu cemented her stand for BBI noting that the County should also benefit the residents for a better tommorrow.
City Hall will also work hand in hand with NMS led by General Badi to ensure a better working relationship to the end.
First on her list of challenges is the delays in disbursements of fund caused by the Exchequer thus depriving residents of essential services.
She continued by noting down how other county bosses have been unable to deliver services due to intimidation caused by past leadership. She promised to enhance their relationship and follow the rule of law.
Fellow leaders have congratulated her nomination wishing her all the best in her journey as the Deputy Governor.
“Congratulations Anne Kananu on your swearing in as Nairobi County’s 1st female Deputy Governor. I look forward to a great working relationship between your office, NMS_Kenya and all elected leaders to deliver for the People of Nairobi.” Said Hon. Esther Passaris.
