Mike Sonko sacks 3 powerful officials, days after Igathe’s resignation
Sonko makes drastic changes in his team
“The county advises the public that the persons... are neither employees of the governor's office nor of the county government, hence are not mandated to transact any business on behalf of the county,” reads the notice.
The three were part of a 'dream team' that Sonko unveiled in October last year to steer his agenda.
According to Sonko’s deputy director of communication Elkana Jacob, the three took advantage of their closeness to Sonko to defraud Nairobi residents.
The Governor, warned the public, from people masquerading as county officers and soliciting bribes from contractors and suppliers in the name of facilitating their payments.
“Nairobi wishes to state that soliciting and receiving bribes is a criminal offence hence any person masquerading as a Nairobi county employee or associating the county government with such criminal acts should be apprehended and prosecuted in a court of law." They have never been employees of either the country or the governor's office. One of them [Mulwa] was arrested last evening by Flying Squad officers while receiving bribes from members of the public." Reads Sonko’s Notice
