Governor Sonko’s nominee for Environment CEC has promised to make Nairobi th cleanest city despite her academic qualifications being questioned.
Sonia Birdi, the former United Republican Party (URP) nominated MP appeared before the Nairobi County Assembly Committee on Appointments, which was vetting county executive nominees where she promisd that she will deliver.
“If I was not positive on the change I want to make, I wouldn’t have applied for the position. That D+ in my paper is not a failure but what I can bring on the table,” she said
Sonia was responding after she was put to task on how she would manage the crucial department yet she has no prior knowledge in the environment field.
This came after she revealed that she studied business at the university and scored a D+ in her Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination at Loreto Convent, Msongari.
Ms Birdi holds a Bachelor’s of Commerce degree from D.R College in India and a degree in Business Administration from University of Sheffield, United Kingdom.
The vetting committee, chaired by Acting Speaker Chege Mwaura, asked Ms Birdi to explain how she expected to run the department given her inadequate knowledge on matters relating to environment and her dismal academic performance.
Many Nairobians laughed off Sonko’s idea to nominate her most putting her qualifications on question!
