Sh83M goes missing from Nairobi County bank accounts

Sonko losing money

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko

Detectives are investigating an incident in which the Nairobi County administration lost Sh83 million from its bank accounts.

Police investigations have so far narrowed down to three companies that are accused of conspiring to drain the accounts between October 2018 and February 25, 2019 when the funds were discovered missing.

Accounts associated with Waylin Merchants, Fidelity Telacoms and Rayfa Construction Services were on Tuesday frozen through a court order.

Lead investigator Urbanus Munguti also requested the court to order Equity Bank to provide details of transactions for the accounts during the period when the funds were siphoned from the accounts.

Court warrant granted

The courts granted the warrant to also compel Kenya Commercial Bank to appear in court as a witness against Mully Office Equipments.

The bank was also ordered to liaise with DCI detective William Rutoh on the matter.

Investigators are yet to establish how the millions were stolen from county coffers, however, they have been granted access to bank statements to understand the paper trail.
