Elections for Local Government Heads

On the 22nd of February, the Minister for Local Government, Uhuru Kenyatta, declined to gazette Ms. Esther Passaris as a duly nominated Councillor for the ODM. The decision has led to a furore, and worse.

The crisis in Nairobi, which along with Nakuru have failed to agree on a head of their local government authorities pits the Local Government Minister against the interests of sections of the councillors and the national political parties.
