Polycarp Igathe Leaves Office as Nairobi County Deputy Governor

Nairobi Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe has resigned citing failure to earn the trust of his boss Governor Mike Sonko Mbuvi to enable him to deliver services effectively.

“Without fear, favour or ill will I step down to avoid abusing or betraying my oath of office to Kenyans, Nairobians  and my family,” said Igathe.

In a letter dated January 2018 addressed to Governor Mike Sonko, he wrote:

“I write to resign my seat as the elected Deputy Governor of Nairobi City County effective 1pm, Wednesday, 31st January 2018.  

Serving Kenyans, in Nairobi under your leadership, has been a high honour and distinct privilege.

I am grateful to Nairobians and yourself for giving me the opportunity to serve. Thank you and please accept my highest personal regards.”
