Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has rubbished claims that he amassed his wealth through dubious means.

While affirming that on matters corruption no one should be spared including himself, Sonko narrated to NTV that his source of wealth was well documented.

He attributed his empire, that he says spans from prime real estate to motor vehicles among others, as a return on investments he made earlier on in life.

The Governor denied that the properties were proceeds of drugs.

“I saved the little money I was getting. I have not killed anyone, I do not sell drugs…At some point, I came to Nairobi and I invested where my father was…. I own properties all the way from Lamu to Vanga. I have got over 1000 title deeds of properties which I own… I have over 150 logbooks of cars which I own,” he said.

Sonko reiterated that he has over the years opened his purse to the ‘people’ and at the same time noted that his wife was the first to import double-decker buses.

“I am not rich, I am not poor but I am somehow wealthy and I thank God. I have been sharing whatever little I have with the people.

“My wife was the first proprietor in transport who imported double-decker buses post-colonial era.”
