, NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 22 – Governor Mike Sonko has disclosed that revenue collection by the Nairobi County Government has gone up since he took over power from his predecessor Evans Kidero.

Sonko who pegged his election campaign on cleaning up the city and initiating a purge on cartels at City Hall said through his Twitter handle that the county is now collecting between Sh35 to 55 million daily, and was able to collect Sh99 million on a single day on September 7.

In the last two weeks, the county has collected Sh532 million in revenue which Sonko says will be spent on developing the city to tackle challenges in line with his manifesto.

Sonko has occasionally accused county officials of corruption which he has vowed to eliminate after discovering Sh7 million that had not been banked days after taking over as Governor – leading to an investigation against several officials.

During his swearing-in ceremony, Sonko promised to transform Nairobi and return it to its former glory and make it one of the most beautiful cities in Africa.
