Deep-Rooted Corruption at the Heart of Nairobi County Planning Department

A whistleblower has come forth with damning allegations of corruption within the Nairobi County Planning Department.

The anonymous source has accused senior officials of manipulating the submission process.

The whistleblower, who requested anonymity for protection, shared documents showing how senior officials with access to the portal bypassed submission requirements for certain projects.

According to the documents, dated December 2022, a submission was initially returned by the reviewer due to missing attachments and non-compliance with site layout specifications but the submission was later marked as “Submitted” by other parties without meeting the stated requirements.

“Hi Nyakundi. An anonymous insider from within the county has forwarded me a damning document on systemic corruption within the Nairobi County Planning Department. Senior officials with privileged access exploit their position to process submissions lacking required documentation.” 


The whistleblower’s claims expose a breach of trust and a violation of the principles of fairness and transparency that are supposed to govern public institutions.

The gravity of these accusations cannot be overstated, as they implicate the very integrity of the county’s governance and could have far-reaching consequences including the misallocation of county resources and a significant erosion of public confidence in the county administration.

Efforts to elicit a response from the implicated officials have been met with a wall of silence.

As this developing story unfolds, remains unwavering in uncovering the truth and informing Kenyans.

Further investigations are underway and updates will be provided as we receive them.
