All workers under the defunct local authorities will now be absorbed by county governments. Transitional Authority boss Kinuthia Wamwangi told the Nation Wednesday that Local Government accounts would soon be closed and funds transferred to county units. All the money collected would then be banked in the new accounts as county funds. Under the Urban Areas and Cities Act, Nairobi and other towns will be vested in the county government and administered on its behalf by an 11-member board, six of whom shall be appointed through a competitive process by the county executive committee with the approval of the county assembly.
