sonkoNairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Tuesday sent home the county government Chief Cashier for being found in custody of Sh. 7 million in cash.

The governor led a sting operation following an anonymous tip on Wednesday. He found the money in excess of 7 million still lying around the city hall offices.

The money according to Sonko was supposed to have been banked the previous day.

“It is completely unacceptable that yesterday’s collection in excess of Sh7 million in cash was lying with the cashiers by 11 am yet the county’s bank is only 50 metres away,” he said.

The governor also instructed that the cash office be installed with CCTV cameras that will be monitored by his office, the CID and NSIS.
