Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero is reportedly displeased with the naming of a road in Karen after him.
The road, now Dr. Evans O Kidero road, is some metres after the high-end Galleria mall and links Langata Road to Bomas of Kenya.
Kidero is reportedly not at peace with Nairobi CEC member for roads Evans Ondieki after he (Ondieki) apparently named the road without consulting him.
A senior officer at City Hall informed the Star of Kidero's displeasure with the naming. The officer said Kidero recently summoned all the officers who mooted the idea adding that they will face disciplinary action. Kidero is also said to have ordered that the road sign be pulled down.
Efforts to get an official statement regarding the road from City Hall since Monday have been futile. Ondieki didn't respond to calls and messages sent to his phone.
County information directors Beryl Okundi and Walter Mongare also declined to comment on the issue.
"Thats a very hot potato. Ask Ondieki because he knows what he did," said Beryl Okundi.
Efforts to get a comment from Kidero were also futile as he too did not respond to calls and messages sent to his phone.
The naming of the road has caused a stir on social media in the last two weeks with several questions raised about why Kidero named it after himself.

CORD leader Raila Odinga will leave for the US in a week's time for another lecture tour, shortly after his return from Germany on Tuesday.
Raila is scheduled to be in Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
He will give the annual Coca-Cola World Fund talk on October 9.
The trip is at the invitation of MacMillan Center, Yale University.
His main lecture is titled “Afro-Optimism: Has the Pendulum Swang Too Far?”
It will focus on Africa as the next frontier.
Information posted on the university website described the opposition leader as a champion of democracy.
“Odinga has been involved in the struggle for freedom and democracy in Kenya since the 1970s, and for his efforts was detained three times without trial,” the university stated.
Previous lecturers in the series include US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, first female Ireland PresidentMary Robinson and former ICC Prosecutor Luis Ocampo.
Raila will, however, likely skip an invitation to Columbia due to time constraints, as he is scheduled to lead a team of election observers in Mozambique's general elections.
He was appointed as the head of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa observers' mission to oversee Mozambique's October 15 polls.

Cord's Okoa Kenya  rally in Kinango market in Kwale was interrupted briefly on Monday when a man stormed the meeting and started attacking Cord leader Raila Odinga and other coalition leaders using a stick.
Odinga and other leaders, including Kwale governor Salim Mvurya, Senator Juma Boy, Hassan Omar, Agnes Zani, James Orengo, Johnstone Muthama and MPs Hassan Mwanyoa and Zulekha Juma, were dancing when the drama started.
The old man managed to sneak among dancers and hit both Raila and Mvurya twice with the stick before bodyguards overpowered him. It was not immediately established why the man hit Raila.
Both Raila and Mvurya aides were nowhere in sight when their bosses were being punished for mistakes they didn't know. Kwale county publicity officer Omar Mwagao later wrestled the man to the ground.
Mwagao snatched the stick as the man attempted to land yet another blow at the governor who was astonished by the turn of events as Raila watched.
The man was later handed to police for questioning.
Kinango AP commander Peter Musyoka said they could not arrest and lock the man because he was mentally ill.
“We cannot arrest a mad person because we know him very well,” he told The Star.
Raila and his team later addressed the rally during their campaign in Kinango before heading to Mwangulu, LungaLunga and Diani.
