Confusion as cheques signed by Sonko are rejected by banks

Sonko signed 68,700 cheques recently.

A whooping 68,700 whose value amount to Sh357.5 million have been rejected by banks, after several MCAs presented them to designated banks for cash withdrawals or deposits.

The cheques, which were meant to benefit students in Nairobi’s 85 wards, are now pending.

Recently, Cooperative Bank, according to the County Education Executive Janet Ouko, rejected the cheques signed by her boss, sentiments which were echoed by Kileleshwa Ward MCA Elias Okumu.

“I am not aware that there is any cheque that has got an error because none has been presented to me. I don’t have one cheque that has been returned,” Ms Ouko said, as quoted by the Nation.

Ms Ouko said spelling mistakes should be addressed between the concerned parties, adding that only six parents had raised concerns over signature mismatch in the cheques.
