BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,30TH JULY 2018-Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has with immediate effect suspended Chief of Staff Brian Mugo over misuse of funds.
Mugo was suspended together with acting Finance Chief Officer Ekaya Alumasi and acting Head of County Treasury Stephen Mutua.
The said officials were accused of inflating and issuing Local Purchase Orders (LPO) and Service Orders (LSO) without the requisite approval by the Governor.
In April this year ,County Secretary and Head of County Public Service Peter Kariuki stated that the staff were ‘identified through perusal of available documentation’ and had been given 14 days to show cause why they should not be dismissed.
Sonko has now asked the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to move with speed to investigate the matter concerning Mugo .The tough talking governor says those found culpable will be prosecuted.
