Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has suffered a blow in his bid to constitute a new cabinet after one of the new executives he had appointed declined her nomination.

The new appointee, who was to head a critical department at the county government, has expressed her reservation working with Governor Sonko.

According to reliable sources, the appointee cited a raft of factors that needed to be addressed before thinking of taking up the job offer.

Top on the list was the Governor’s abrasive leadership style citing his impromptu visits, sensationalizing of issues, lack of integrity and lack of respect to professionalism.

The appointee also wanted issues of nepotism at the county government addressed, accountability and transparency in resource allocation and utilization and political commitment be addressed.

Last month, Governor Sonko made a reshuffle in his cabinet retaining only half of his earlier cabinet members while bringing in some new faces.

The reshuffle came after the resignation of Education executive Janet Ouko early in January leaving the Governor with only five County Executive Committee Members (CECM) following the suspension of former Devolution executive Veska Kangogo, former Health executive Hitan Majevdia and the non-renewal of contracts of former Livestock and Agriculture executive Wachira Njunguna and ICT executive Emmah Muthoni last year.

NEW FACES 

The new faces, whose names were to be forwarded to the County Assembly for vetting by the Appointments committee, included former United Republican Party (URP) nominated legislator Ms Sanjeev Kaur Sonia Birdi and former Kiambu Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Stella Bosire.

Ms Birdi was nominated for the Environment department while Dr Bosire was nominated for the Health department.

Mr Charles Kerich has been retained in the Lands, Urban Renewal and Planning and Housing docket as the executive, a position that he has been holding since the last reshuffle in July last year.

Mr Kerich has been acting as Health Services executive after the suspension of another acting executive Ms Kangogo in September last year, but now the position will be held by The Health docket was substantively held by Mr Majevdia who was suspended in August last year after being accused of laxity in office.

RESHUFFLE 

Roads, Infrastructure and Transport executive Mohamed Dagane has also been retained, Newton Munene, who was formerly heading the Trade docket will now head the ICT, Communication and E-government department taking over from Emmah Muthoni who was relieved off her duties last year.

Environment executive Larry Wambua moves to Water and Agriculture while former Finance and Economic Planning executive Allan Igambi takes over Trade, Tourism and Cooperatives docket.

Mr Igambi’s position will be taken over by former Economic Planning chief officer and acting Finance chief officer Winfred Kathangu.

Another chief officer who has been elevated is former Education chief officer Ms Lucia Mulwa who will now head the Education, Youth, Gender and Sports docket.

Acting County Secretary Pauline Kahiga, who assumed the position after the suspension of Peter Kariuki in September last year, will now be the new Devolution and Public Service Management executive.

She will replace Ms Kangogo who was last in the last in the position before her suspension last year.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
