Governor Sakaja disputes allegations of using taxpayers money to hire a helicopter

On Sunday night, Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja was compelled to explain the source of the funds that allowed him to fly over the weekend to the Western Kenya and Nyanza regions.

When he arrived at one of the engagements listed on his itinerary, Sakaja was seen in photos posted online getting off a helicopter. He was soon forced to defend the reasons behind his expenditures.

The tweet that sparked the prompt suggested that a cabinet directive be put in place that prohibits the use of funds from public coffers to assist pricey transportation for public officials, arguing that he should have taken a regular aircraft instead.

Governor Sakaja quickly refuted, saying that he had paid for his travel and that no public money had been used to cover his flight costs.

The most recent comes after Sakaja was also questioned about the funding for the “Welcome Back” billboards that were put up at the city’s entrance points.
