Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko Bribes EACC

Embattled Nairobi County Governor Mike ‘the Kevese” Sonko has decided to use his access to the county coffers to end his woes with the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC).

Sonko, is said to have sent the Nairobi County Assembly Majority Leader, Abdi Guyo and Nairobi County – Finance CEC Halkano Waqo to bribe EACC detectives so as to go slow on his corruption case.

Halkano Waqo is using his Brother’s (Former EACC CEO, Mr. Halakhe Waqo) connections at EACC, to delay the corruption case.

Earlier this month Mike Sonko was heavily questioned by EACC on corruption scandal involving over Kshs.600 million.

Mike Sonko travelled to New York to try to get an audience with the President Uhuru Kenyatta (who is attending the UNGA) to assist him.

This comes even as the president said that he is no longer going to help those implicated in corruption.

In late August, President Uhuru warned senior government officials and businessmen implicated in corruption not to expect help or intervention from him.

The President said people arrested over corruption should not bother calling him when the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji and his Directorate of Criminal Investigations counterpart George Kinoti strike.

“You will just read in the newspapers that someone has been picked up by detectives. It is upon everyone to think over their actions. The culture of calling for help is no more, it will be upon you to defend yourself,” the President said.

 “Ni noma, hizo simu zilizimwa zamani” (Things are thick. My phones were switched off a long time ago) – President Uhuru Kenyatta Said

It remains to be seen if Mike Sonko’s woes will go away.
