The move by the governor is meant to allow the audit of pending bills amounting to Sh 60 billion.

In his suit papers,through the City Hall lawyer Thomas Letangule, Sonko says the previous administration of the Nairobi City County ,ed by former Governor Evans Kidero and the defunct Nairobi City Council incurred huge amounts of debt which have continued to accrue at exorbitant interest.

He states there are hundreds of arrest warrants for imprisonment against county officials and these pose a great threat to the functions of the county government and the greater public.

He says arresting and detaining the county officials has the potential of bringing to a standstill or throwing into disarray the functioning of Nairobi County Government.

He wants the matter to be certified as urgent and that the court should suspend the execution of the warrants.

Already the Nairobi County Government has started an audit of over 600 beneficiaries of Kidero’s bursaries that City Hall suspect was used to to award Sh200 million in the awarding of the bursaries.
