No coin will be lost under my watch – Sonko tells MCAs


Governor Mike Sonko has told Nairobi MCAs that no public funds will be diverted or embezzled under his watch.

He was addressing MCAs during a breakfast meeting at a Nairobi hotel after they returned from the long Christmas break.

“I want to assure the assembly that all our development plans will be fully implemented, cash will not be diverted by my officers or embezzled,” Sonko said.

The governor appealed to MCAs not to frustrate development projects in their respective wards.

He has also directed all top county officials to honour summons by assembly’s committees without fail.

“If my officials who have been summoned fail to turn up, I’m ready to appear before the committees for grilling over any issue at City Hall,” he said.

Acting Speaker Chege Mwaura said MCAs are rejuvenated and are ready to work.

“We will work hand in hand with Sonko administration for the benefit of Nairobi residents. Incidents of chaos and disagreements will never be witnessed again in the assembly,” said Mwaura.

At the same time, Sonko asked MCAs to fast track vetting of the five County Executive Members nominees.
