In a circular dated February 26, 2018, Sonko said that the new changes take effects immediately. "The changes should take effect immediately and the Executive Members should take their work with the seriousness it deserves."

The Governor replaced his Finance Executive Member Veska Kangongo with Danvas Makori, who was serving in the Agriculture, Livestock Development and Fisheries.

Larry Wambua who was in Devolution will be in charge of Environment, replacing Emmah Mukuhi who has now been transferred to ICT docket.

Charles Kerich, who was heading ICT has been moved to Lands and Peter Njuguna who was in Lands will now serve in the Agriculture docket.

"The changes should take effect immediately and the Executive Members should take their work with the seriousness it deserves."

According to Nairobi Deputy Director of Communications, Elkana Jacob, Sonko had to effect the changes for better service delivery.

"The Governor is after effective service delivery. People should not read too much in this, it is purely to make Nairobi County more productive," he said.

The Governor has maintained Hitan Majevdia in the Health docket, Allan Igambi as the Tourism Exexutive and Janet Ouko in the Education, Youth, Gender and Sports.

Mohammed Dagane will remain the CEC in charge of Roads, Infrastructure and Transport.
