Friday July 26, 2019 - Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, has disclosed the people behind the city's loss of Ksh175 million to rogue companies over unsupplied goods.
Through his social media pages, Sonko gave out the name of the alleged cartel-run firm swindling Kenyans and the identity of the owner.
"There is a cartel called PROLAND owned by a Mr. FREDRICK MUNGAI recorded a consent with Nairobi County during the previous administration to be paid 35Million for nothing," his post began.
He went on to ascertain that the same cartel was paid amounts over Ksh50 million by the past administration for zero work.
"They were paid over Ksh50 Million during the previous administration for supplying hot air," he stated.
Sonko went on to reveal that the same syndicate was back colluding with police officers to swindle the County more money.
"Now they are back, every time they always come with police officers arrest our finance staff and force them to pay more millions at the expense of taxpayers. So far they have already been paid 175,000,000/= for supplying air," he continued.
Sonko then went on to issue a terse warning to the cartel stating that he would deal with them squarely.
"But as long as I am the Governor of Nairobi, I will NOT let any cartel steal county money," he affirmed.
