Nairobi Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe has resigned barely six months after assuming office citing failure to earn the trust of his boss to enable him to deliver services to Nairobians.

Igathe resigned on Friday, January 12, months after reports emerged of a bitter fallout with Governor Mike Sonko.

In a statement, Igathe said that he had failed to win Sonko’s trust to run administration and management of the county government.

“Without fear, favor or ill will I step down to avoid abusing or betraying my oath of office to Kenyans, Nairobians and my family. Thank you for the encouraging support given to me so far,” he said in his statement.

Igathe was elected alongside Sonko on a Jubilee ticket in a hotly contested election on August 8, 2017.
