Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja is yet to crack the whip like being witnessed in other counties across the Counties.

For weeks now, Sakaja has been holding closed door meetings with County heads and other senior staff as he familiarizes himself with activities that fall under his office.

At the same time the Governor has been receiving updates on the ongoing transfer of some functions from NMS back to the County.

Amid the activities that the Governor’s office has been sharing on Facebook and Twitter platforms.

It is now emerging that journalists who cover CityHall have been left guessing how Governor Sakaja operates.

“We haven’t heard much from Sakaja since he was sworn in, we only see him through events shared online,” a correspondent covering City Hall told Nairobi Journal.

“At the moment, Sakaja has a communications team and City Hall has the same unit, I think there is still confusion between the two camps. In such situations Sakaja must hunt for some clever communications person” the stringer explained.

Nairobi Journal understands that some journalists have been feeling sidelined on how information trickles down from the office of the Governor.

A section of the residents interviewed said some of the areas that they expect the Governor to focus on include ghost workers and cartels around City Hall.

“We have not seen much from the new government, we expect him to crack the whip, some County Askaris are still collecting bribes from matatus and hawkers,” Daniel Mwangi, a taxi operator around city Hall said.

He added that,”we the taxi operators are also suffering, rogue Askaris are harassing digital taxi drivers yet Sakaja came in with sweet promises,”
