Blow to Mike Sonko as EACC stops him from buying Kenya Railway property
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has suffered another blow after Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission directed Kenya Railways not to sale a property worth of millions to Sonko.
According to The Star, EACC on Tuesday wrote Kenya Railways directing the corporation not to transact any business on the property located in the upmarket Upper Hill Estate as it is under investigations.
“The Commission is in receipt of information that Kenya Railways Corporation is in the process of selling one of the properties, a house situated at Matumbato Road Nairobi, to Primix Ltd,”
“This is to ask you to halt any intended sale as the matter is under investigations.” EACC chief executive Twalib Mbarak said.

However, when the publication conducted Kenya Railways Managing Director Philip Mainga he distanced himself from the claims.
“That one I am not involved, that is a pension scheme project and my office is not involved at all.” Said Mainga.
The embattled Governor has accused his political rivals for his tribulations. He has not shunned away from pointing fingers to Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho for plotting his downfall.
Sonko took to his social media pages to hit at public officers at Harambee House who he thinks they are drunk with power.
“I have a message to some of my friends at Harambee House who are drunk with power.Power comes, power goes, power is temporary, and transient but the will of the people, and the will of God, is eternal,” he wrote.
