Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has suspended City Hall cash officers with immediate effect.
The city boss ordered acting County Secretary Leboo Ole Morintat on Monday to suspend all cashiers that were present when the governor recovered Sh7 million at City Hall's cash office last week.
Sonko said that they were to step aside until investigation into the matter was concluded.
"I direct that you suspend the chief officer and his cashiers at the cash office during the operation and they should not report to work until investigations are done. If they are innocent they will be reinstated. We will not allow a few individuals to ruin the name of the county government," said Sonko.
Mr Morintat said that he was gathering the names of those nabbed with the cash so that he could draft a suspension letter.
