This is what happens if deputy Governor resigns,Find out if sonko will name new deputy

Today sonko deputy Governor shocked everyone with a short resignation message shared on his social media accounts.
Here is the message
"Dear Nairobians, it is with a heavy heart that I resign my seat as elected Deputy Governor of Nairobi City County effective 1pm on 31st Jan 2018. I regret I have failed to earn the trust of the Governor to enable me to drive Admin & Management of the county.
Without fear, favour or ill will I step down to avoid abusing or betraying my oath of office to Kenyans, Nairobians & my family.
Thank you for the encouraging support given to me so far."

So what happens if a deputy Governor resigns, here is what happens according to the constitution.
If the Deputy Governor resigns the Governor continues run the county as if nothing happened. The Bill allowing the Governor to replace the Deputy Governor upon a vacancy in the office has not been passed into law. This means the Governor will run the county without a deputy until the legislation is enacted .
Our democracy is maturing so fast,chapter 11,does not say anything about resignation of a deputy governor.
These are the strange waters but not a constitutional crisis.
He will most likely delegate most duties to other senior people in the county government but will never act as a deputy Governor
