Feared and worshipped is the best way to describe him. The top City Hall official who heads a department is a man on the spot.
The man from Eastern region who is loved and hated in equal measure because of his aggressiveness and cunning ways of doing things, is now on the spot over his alleged involvement with cartels within the corridors of City Hall.
The man who is the Chairman of a Political group in Nairobi County is alleged to be colluding with cartels at the Revenue Department to issue rates payments to land owners who have defaulted on paying rates to the Nairobi City County Government.
The feared man who is normally surrounded by over 10 heavily built men is said to be the powerful man at City Hall who can make things move where even CECs or the acting Governor Anne Kananu cannot manage.
The former strategist of Evans Kidero joined City Hall after Mike Sonko poached him from Kidero’s camp. When Sonko was elected in 2017 as Nairobi Governor he appointed him in a crucial docket at City Hall.
In the recent activities the man has been using big names of politicians to extort and inflict fear to county workers.
A senior person who sought anonymity due to sensitivity of the matter said that he is untouchable and that this is his modus operandi.
“He uses big names of politicians to threaten us. No one cares about him. He is the one who controls revenue department and he does a lot of illegal deals.” He said.
What now awaits is the relevant authorities to take necessary action, but will it happen since he has big chain of cartels at City Hall among them county officials?
