City official charged with bribing Sonko
By VINCENT AGOYA
Embattled Nairobi County Chief of Staff George Wainaina has been charged with bribing Senator Mike Sonko to silence him from blowing the whistle on corruption in the city.
Mr Wainaina denied that on January 5 at KICC he offered Sh1 million to Mr Sonko as inducement not to pursue a matter where he had invited the media to accompany him in documenting how senior officers were constructing private and development houses using public funds.
Mr Wainaina was charged alongside his secretary Roselyn Oluoch who has since pleaded to the charges.
He was released on a bond of Sh 1 million with one surety or a cash bail of Sh 800,000 pending hearing on May 16.
