Governor Sakaja Again Misses To Appear Before The Senate

On Monday, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja failed to appear before the County Public Accounts and Investments Committee (CPAIC to respond to audit queries.

The committee has now put on notice the governor for failing to honour various invitations and summons from the House.

This has prompted the committee to issue another summon for Sakaja to appear in the next 14 days.

The committee was notified that the governor is currently out of the country.

The committee wants Sakaja to explain how Ksh.76 billion was used in four subsequent Financial Years from 2019 to 2023.

Governor Sakaja is now a marked man in the House, and the CPAIC has directed Inspector General Japhet Koome to compel the governor to appear before the committee within 14 days.

The committee, led by Senator Moses Kajwang’ has also invited the EACC leadership to appear before the committee and start investigations into Nairobi County over misuse of funds.

If it happens that Ksh.76 billion cannot be accounted for, then the Senate committee will advise the Treasury not to fund Nairobi County and legal action must be taken against Sakaja.

This comes afterc last week, he appeared before the CPAIC and was turned away by the committee for not having proper documentation.

He was then asked to appear on Monday, April 8.
