Friday July 19, 2019-Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has resorted to unconventional means to recover his money owed by Deputy President William Ruto and his entire office.
Sonko's office has published a notice seeking a consultant who will automate the debtors' and creditors' management platform with an aim of pursuing defaulters.
These defaulters include companies who fail to pay parking fees, unified business permits, house rent, markets’ fees, billboards advertising and land rates.
After the system is put in place, the collectors will be paid in commission for all the monies collected.
“The overall objective of the assignment is to reduce the amount of county debts and liabilities and put in place sustainable long-term debt and liabilities management structures,” read the notice in part.
The most notable debtor of the Nairobi County currently is the DP's office which owes Ksh189.08 million for 113 parking spots on Harambee Avenue.
The office also owes Ksh14.06 million for 10 parking slots along Parliament Lane dating back to 2014.
