Currently, detectives from the Ethics, and Anti-Corruption Commission are investigating a multimillion corruption scandal involving a Nairobi City County employee by the name Wilson Nashon Kanani. Wilson is a Nairobi County Development Control Officer who is in charge of ensuring that billboards and other road signage do not violate county and national laws.
However, EACC detectives according to a Nation report believe that Mr Kanani has been receiving kickbacks from the same people he was tasked with ensuring they comply with the law. The Detectives found that the county official received more than Sh506 million through five banks during the period under investigation.
For example, Mr. Kanani's personal account at I&M bank received Sh181 million. The detectives have also flagged a transaction form a company Associated with the Kenyatta family. This is according to a report by Nation that read, "Among the transactions that detectives have flagged are fund transfers from the Kenyatta family-associated Mediamax Network Ltd totalling Sh23.8 million."
It seems that Mediamax Ltd paid Mr. Kanani Sh23.8 million however the exact reason for the payment was not revealed in the news report. The Kenyatta family is one of the wealthiest in Kenya and the details of most of their vast wealth is a highly guarded secret. However, their most prominent business is the Brookside company which mainly deals with dairy products.
