0 820

A Section of Nairobi county MCAs  allied to governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko together with  goons on Monday stormed office of the acting County Executive  for Finance Pauline Kahiga who is said to have fallen out with Sonko, ejecting her from office.

The group stormed Cityhall at 11 am just before Pauline was whisked away by her security following a tip off by her secretary.

Sources at Cityhall privy to the  new bad  blood between the governor and Kahiga  have intimated to Ghetto Radio News  that Kahiga has refused to pay  top county lawyers on the pending bills list instead, she want to pay  small scale business poeple who did business with the county.

‘‘She  refused to  obey the directive by the governor to pay lawyers being owed huge amount of money after sh. 1 billion was  released by treasury last week that’s why the  governor is not happy,’’ he said.

Meanwhile the MCAs have gone ahead and   ‘installed‘  Trade CEC Allan Igambi Esabwa as the new Finance Minister despite being prohibited by the law.

A document  was later  circulated in the media showing degazzetement of Pualine Kahiga through acting county secretary Lebo Ole Morintat which is also a violation of  public finance magement act.

Meanwhile  minority whip Peter Imwatok has warned Sonko against interfering with operations at Cityhall saying the governor is going against his bail terms.

‘‘Several CECs and chief officers have complained to me about this issue of intimidation  and have said it severally … you can see what Kahiga went through today… we want to tell Sonko to pay poor Nairobians not top lawyers with huge pending bills who inturn offer kick-backs.’’Imwotk said.

Kahiga later recorded a statement at the KICC  police station.
