NAIROBI, Kenya, May 14 – Auditor General Edward Ouko has asked Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko to provide evidence that some auditors sought for a bribe from him in order to write a favourable report for the county.
Ouko says his office takes integrity seriously and if indeed some staffs are being compromised as Sonko claimed, action will be taken against them.
While appearing before the County Public Accounts and Investment Committee on April 30 Sonko discredited Auditor General’s report and alleged that the auditors asked for a bribe.
On 4 May, the governor further called for the suspension and investigation of auditors who wrote the 2017/2018 financial reports for Nairobi and Kiambu Counties.
He faulted the auditor’s saying they wrote a negative report for Nairobi County after he refused to bribe them and a favorable one for Kiambu County which was discredited by the Senate watchdog committee.
