Sonko explains ‘cash in underwear scam’ by cashiers

Nairobi County Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has reiterated his stunt on fighting corruption, citing that it is the main factor hindering development.

Sonko who was speaking during a televised interview in one of the local TV stations maintained that he won’t entertain nonsense in his leadership.

He noted that cartels are his main target who are going to be eliminated during his reign.

“I really value my people and I do not entertain nonsense. Corruption is the main factor hindering development; I will not entertain corruption and cartels in my leadership,” he said.

Sonko further narrated an incident where he found some cashiers in one of the county offices with liquid cash hidden in their underneath clothes.

On Monday this week Sonko made an impromptu visit to Pumwani Maternity Hospital after receiving a complaint and found 12 infant bodies wrapped in plastic bags and hidden in carton boxes.

This led to an immediate suspension of the top management of the hospital for their negligence and failure to address the issues witnessed by Sonko.

After reports emerging that the hospital lacked a morgue and thus depended on City mortuary which used to collected bodies on Mondays and Thursdays only, Sonko on Wednesday took an initiative of installing coolers for a temporary morgue at the hospital facility.
