Nairobi governor Mike Sonko has sounded a warning to the public to be aware of conmen using his name to ask for kickbacks from suppliers and contractors.

Sonko disclosed on Wednesday that he has been receiving complaints from people who have been defrauded by imposters who identify themselves as either government officials or allies to the governor.

"To entice their targets, they promise to help in accessing and processing the loans through partnership with Equity Bank or Safaricom. These are falsehoods disseminated with the purpose of defrauding the public, "stated Sonko.

According to Sonko, these particular individuals con the public using social media and other digital forms of communication. 

"Soliciting and receiving bribes is a criminal offense punishable by law and any person masquerading as a Nairobi County employee or associating the Governor with such criminal intentions or act should be apprehended or prosecuted," warned Sonko.

The Nairobi County bids called upon the victims of this unlawful act to file reports with relevant authorities. 

"Those who have been conned should report to the relevant authorities. I assure the public that my administration has put in place proper communication structure to ensure all that it processes are above board and devoid of corruption malpractices, "said Sonko.
