Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has denied being involved in the bursary fraud amounting to Ksh. 297 Million as indicated by MCAs in his impeachment case terming the move as malicious, character assassination and drama.
Sonko says the allegations against him before the senate are cooked and do not hold water.
“We have documents from CBK showing that bursary funds financial year 2019/2020 were not released. This is character assassination and the motion mover is dramatising the whole issue,” said Sonko.
“Some of the relatives to MCAs were benefiting from bursaries. Some suspects like directors of Kobudho Education Center were even arrested by the DCI,” Sonko continued.
Sonko alleges that the directors of the fraudulent institution called Kobudho Education center were John Omondi, Francis Ouma PA to Karen MCA David Mberia, Nancy Nasimiyu.
Sonko further accused the MCAs of blackmailing him with the motion after he stopped bursary disbursement at the assembly.
Senators are expected to take a vote on the impeachment motion to reject or to send the governor home.
