A Candidate for the Nairobi Gubernatorial seat has lost shs 8 million after a lawyer who was to carry the cash for facilitation during the launch of her Gubernatorial bid failed to turn up.
The launch took place last week at a popular events venue in Nairobi.
Several groups who had been mobilized to attend were not paid their allowances on time.
This forced the Candidate to get cash from “other sources” to pay the attendees their allowances, mobilization fees, and other costs that had been incurred.
The launch was successful since it was well attended.
However, the candidate is reportedly angry with her lawyer only identified as “Maloba” for not availing the cash.
While talking about the incident at a City Hotel, several of those who attended lamented that the lawyer was trusted to carry and avail the cash, but he failed.
“He is a big letdown. He must be working with Madam’s opponents to derail her campaigns. How do you fail to turn up when you are most expected!” posed Moses Mwangi who attended that launch.
It’s not clear if the lawyer will avail the cash or not.
However, sources close to the Governor Candidate hinted to Hot News that she is contemplating writing to the LSK, the DCI and all other relevant bodies to intervene.
