Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) boss Major General Mohammed Badi has divulged that he may consider vying for a political seat after 2022.
In an interview with NTV, Badi noted that he is currently concentrating on improving service delivery with the Nairobi metropolis.
According to Badi, he is still in the military and thus remains apolitical meaning he cannot be affiliated to any political outfit until he retires from the military which will be after the next election.
“I don’t at the moment since I’m still a serving officer we remain apolitical so I’m not afilliated to any party. I will not think so (about politics) so long as I am in uniform… I still have two years to serve so maybe after next elections,” he said.
BRT buses arrive in Nairobi
Addressing photos of BRT buses seen in the city, Major General Badi divulged that the buses are already in the country and will soon start operating.
“BRT buses will be here soon, the trains have arrived. Railways Station will be renamed 'Railway City'…” he said.
Badi relationship with Sonko
Regarding his relationship with Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, Badi divulged that they are in talking terms, adding that he has no personal issue with the governor.
“When you serve the common citizen well, politicians think you are suppressing their votes. I have no issues with Nairobi Governor, I am focused on service delivery,” he said.
The NMS boss noted that under his leadership, the city has undergone a complete overhaul.
According to him, the NMS team has accomplished most of the short term goals they were given by the president, with the pending ones set to be achieved before end of the year.
“I have achieved 100% of what I was told to do by the President… When I took over NMS leadership, I saw a lot of suffering in Nairobi, especially in slums….I have an advantage because I am not looking for votes, I deliver whatever is going to benefit common mwananchi,” he divulged.
