A section of Kamba leaders have threatened to name unknown powerful people in the government, who they claimed are behind Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko woes.

Speaking to the press in Machakos, leaders of the Kamba Clans Governing Council Association termed recent summons of Mr Sonko by the anti-graft agency is witch-hunt

The elders representing the 22 Akamba said the President Uhuru Kenyatta needs to intervene and reaffirm his promise to the Kamba community during the last general election.

In the recent past, the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) has interrogated Mr Sonko over loss of funds at City Hall.

A trail of how money was moved into Mr Sonko’s private bank accounts from as early as 2017 is at the centre of investigations by the EACC.

The monies, which moved between some seven companies in a complex web, is a puzzle the EACC is now trying to unravel as initial investigations show that the transactions began way before Mr Sonko was elected as governor.

The EACC has already written to Equity Bank asking for statements of specific transactions made by ROG Security Limited, High Energy Petroleum and Arbab Auto Limited.
