Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko will reorganize the Finance Department after county staff complained of delayed September salaries.
“It is unfortunate that the delay has been occasioned by sabotage in the Finance Department. I wish to pass my sincere apologies,” Sonko said on his Twitter account on Wednesday.
Sonko said the delay was occasioned by outgoing Finance CEC who deliberately refused to make a formal request to the Controller of Budget to release funds on time.
“This is highly regrettable; nevertheless it is being addressed with the urgency it deserves,” he said.
He said to address the “unfortunate” occurrence, heads will roll at the finance department.
