Subject: Separation of Enforcement and Compliance units for efficiency in service delivery

Subject: Separation of Enforcement and Compliance units for efficiency in service delivery           THAT, aware that four functions namely; County Health Service; County Transport service; County public works, utilities and ancillary services; and, County government Planning and development were transferred to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services; DEEPLY CONCERNED that tussles continue to persist between NMS and County Executive which have resulted into provision of poor services and creation of two centers of power; RECOGNIZING that Nairobi City County Inspectorate Service Act, 2017 is intended to provide for proper organization of functions and powers of the Inspectorate Unit in the County; REGRETTING that police officers seconded from the National Police Service are now taking orders from Directors and supervisors who are non –uniformed civilians; a practice which is not ideal for proper functioning of the security, enforcement and compliance department of the County; OBSERVING that selective secondment of enforcement officers to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services segregated the more experienced and senior Officers who now feel greatly underutilized and disenfranchised; an issue that is confounding the much needed synergy and seamless working relationship amongst the enforcement officers; NOTING that lack of proper modus operandi and chain of command coupled with selective choice of officers seconded to NMS would compromise efficiency in the enforcement unit; this ASSEMBLY URGES the County Executive and Nairobi Metropolitan Services to  administratively develop a framework solely intended to  make Enforcement a completely separate and distinct unit from Compliance with ideal and proper chain of command that will enhance service delivery.
