The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has unveiled tactics which Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has been using to accumulate county cash, The Star reports.
EACC in the detailed document, revealed scheme which Sono used to siphon millions from June 2017 to February 2019.
The affidavit alleges that the county boss repeatedly wired money to his bank account by companies that trade with the county.
“Between that time, the Nairobi city government was involved in fraud, corruption, irregular procurements, misappropriations of public funds and conflict of interest through inconsistent and exaggerated payments made to individuals and proxy companies,” the report reads in part.
Hardi Enterprises, Yiro Enterprises, Jackoy Enterprises, Flexilease Enterprises, Acacia Equipment Ltd, Aende Group Ltd and Tsumi group is among the companies listed by EACC as part of the scheme.
Sonko had asked the court to bar EACC from investigating him and even dared to bring the commission down by claiming the land they operate in is grabbed.
