Central Bank of Kenya On the Spot  After Nairobi MCAs and Staff Go Without Salaries


Nairobi county assembly is now in a cash crisis following a battle with former clerk Jacob Ngwele who has now taken the battle to the Central  Bank Of  Kenya blocking account signatories.

On Tuesday, labor and relations court  through   Lady Justice  Hellen Wasilwa ordered CBK to reinstate Sammy Kalundu Ndana and senior finance officer Paul  Kimani Wainaina as  signatories to Nairobi County Assembly exchequer accounts an order that had not been effected by the time were publishing this article.

‘‘Pending inter partes  hearings of this application,this Honorable court is pleased to issue an Order directing Central Bank of Kenya to reinstate Sammy Kalundu Ndana the Principal Accountant and Paul Kimani Senior Finance Officer as authorisers and signatories to the Nairobi City County Assembly Exchequer Accounts ……held by Central Bank of Kenya ..and to incur expenditure and to make payments on money already voted for but unexpended in 2019/2020 Finance Year,’’ reads the order in part.

Nairobi county assembly  MCAs  and over 300 staff members have been going without salaries with the  assembly suppliers also  threatening to stop their services. Committee activities have also been  grounded making it difficult for the honorables to discharge their legislative mandate.

‘‘All these are being done by Ngwele the former clerk and  Director of Banking CBK  Mr Mwenda Marete just to starve MCAs ,staffs and to halt assembly operations.’’ Minority Whip Peter Imwatok told Ghetto Radio News.

When we reached Mr. Marete he brushed off the allegations  saying he does not  discuss client matters in the media.

‘‘We  don’t discuss client information am sorry.’’ Marete told us on phone.
