wardSection of South C residents Nairobi County  has now threatened to storm Governor  Mike Mbuvi Sonko’s office over what they  term as an extortion spree being propagated by the area administrator Maurice Wera.

Residents who talked to Ghetto Radio News  claim that  they are being forced to pay 50 shillings daily and security fee of 10 000 of those doing  small business in  South C Ward.

Those affected are  kiosk owners,hawkers  and  those selling fruits  in  stalls.

‘‘We are tired of this kanjos ,they demand ten thousands for security and we have  paid sh.4000 for our licences,we are tired and Wera should leave this place immediately .’’ One of the resident said.

Same sentiments were echoed by the area MCA Osman Khalif who accused Wera of being arrogant and not ready to serve  his electorates.

He is indeed agreed to have received numerous complaints about Wera and next week  he will take the matter to the assembly.

‘’I can confirm that my office has received those allegation and i will not allow my people to suffer Wera and his team must leave this ward.’’ He said.

Devolution chief officer Jairus Musumba says they will investigate the issues raised against Wera and the entire officials and  action will be taken against those found culpable.

Meanwhile Wera maintains that he is innocent and he never asked  bribe from residents terming such claims as malicious and baseless.

‘’I  have never asked any money from these residents and if there are traders who says that i collect money from them ,let them come and table evidence because this i malicious and character assassination.’’Wera told Ghetto Radio News on phone.
