- Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko claims that the County is broke and that's why he has to ask for funds from the National Treasury.
- Sonko has not been able to pay County workers who are threatening to down their tools.
Nairobi residents now question what happened to all the millions of shillings their Governor Sonko claimed to be collecting after he got into office.
This comes after the Governor wrote to the National treasury asking for Sh 3.3 billion to pay salaries. Sonko claimed that the county is broke hence the need to borrow County workers who have gone unpaid and are now threatening to down their tools.
Kenyans took to share their views on this, some quoting the
huge revenues that Sonko’s office claimed to collect immediately after getting
into office while others voiced their worries for the County under his
five-year long-term. Others simply found a chance to have a laugh.
Here are some from Twitter;
