Embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna has blasted the move by besieged Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to transfer some county government functions to the National government.
Governor Mike Sonko and Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa, in agreement with President Uhuru, on Tuesday 25th February signed an agreement to hand over functions of the county government to the national government.
Well, Miguna Miguna criticised the move claiming that it was unconstitutional as the Kenyan constitution has no part that allows individuals to sit in a room and transfer functions from one level of the government to the other.
The exiled lawyer insisted that the only way governments would transfer functions legally was through legislation via parliament and the respective County Assembly.
“Article 187 of the constitution does not authorize two individuals to sit in a room and transfer functions from one level of government to the other. It authorizes governments to transfer functions legally through legislation via parliament and the respective county assembly. What despot Uhuru Kenyatta has just perpetrated is a fraud on Kenyans and a coup on the constitutional order,” said Miguna.
Miguna further claimed that Nairobians were being subjected to the jaws of high profile thieves as the national government loots 85% of its budget, therefore would deny them the much-needed service delivery.
“The national government loots 85% of its budget. Despot Uhuru Kenyatta has presided over electoral thefts, gross violations of human rights, abuse of power, disobedience of court orders and mass murder of Kenyans. You cannot replace a dog with a hyena and expect service delivery,” added Miguna.
