Governor Nairobi City County, terminate forthwith the services of one Ms. Lydia Kwamboka as County Attorney in accordance with section 13 of the Office  of the County Attorney Act 2020..and All instructions issued  to the firm Njenga Maina and Company Advocates be withdrawn and given to internal advocates or a law firm that is pre-qualified to offer legal services to the county,’’ the  report states.

 ‘‘The County Attorney has contravened and variously flouted the provisions of the public procurement and asset disposal act 2015 through the issuance of instructions to unqualified law firm.’’ It continued.

‘‘The conduct of the county attorney does not meet the provisions of Chapter 6 of the constitution of Kenya and the Leadership and Integrity Act 2012 and hence she is unfit to hold public office.’’ It reads.
