Tuesday May 5, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has reportedly instructed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to probe a deal made between trustees of Kenya Railways staff retirement benefits scheme and Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko.
According to impeccable sources, the trustees colluded with Kenya Railways’ top managers to sell a property in Upper Hill to Mike Sonko at a throw away price – Sh 500 million.
The property is situated along Matumbato Road – right behind the five-star Radisson Blu Hotel – which is one of Nairobi’s most sought-after addresses.
The property is the nerve centre of Sonko’s political activities, serving as his private office, especially since he was barred from accessing City Hall.
DCI sleuths, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said among things they are investigating is where the Governor got the money to buy the property.
DCI detectives are also hunting for Kenya Railways trustees who are yet to pay retirees their pension despite working for many years to receive their pension in time.
Kenya Railways pensioners are yet to receive their pension since October last year.
