Former CJ exposes major scam at Nairobi County office

The expose' comes even after key management at the facility were sent on a compulsory leave

On Friday, Dr Mutunga in a series of tweets, expressed his dissatisfaction in the just disbanded Nairobi Water and Sewerage Company board over disconnecting his supply yet he did not have any outstanding debt.

Dr Mutunga, divulged that the supply that was cut off was a backup borehole line, after opting to disconnect the service, thanks to poor customer relations.

“I paid Nairobi Water Sh20, 000 plus arrears by former owner of the flat to get connected early 2016. For more than a year I never got a drop of water from Nairobi Water. They continued to bill me for minimum charge,” he wrote.

He added:  “When I realised I was being cheated I sought disconnection. I had to pay Sh15, 500 for the minimum charges! I lost Sh35, 000. Luckily for me the apartments have a borehole. So I thought I was rid of Nairobi Water. I was wrong!”

Dr Mutunga further noted that the company chose to inconvenience 17 other tenants as it was only seven out of 24 who had not cleared with the water distributor.

In his tweets, he said he spoke to a supervisor at Nairobi Water by the name Nancy who also said she would get direction from her supervisors and then let their caretaker know but She did not get back as promised.

“It is likely that my two tweets posted this week about Nairobi Water and cartels may have a bearing on the actions of Nairobi water,” posited the former chief justice.

He further expressed concern that he now only has enough water to use for a day and may start looking at water trucks if he is to get water to use.

“We have water to last us one day. Today I will look out for clean water tankers,” he tweeted.

Early this week, Nairobi governor Mike Sonko cracked a whip that saw top company management send on a compulsory leave following a week-long standoff between workers and the management.

There were claims that top management was having plans of privatizing the company, a stand Mr Sonko said will investigate. The company is currently experiencing major financial woes and dilapidated facilities.
