  • Nairobi County Executive Committee (CEC) nominee for Built Environment and Urban Planning Stephen Gathuita Mwangi has revealed that he is worth Ksh600 million way higher than at least ten of President William Ruto’s Cabinet Secretaries.

    Mwangi appearing before the County Assembly’s Committee on Appointments on Tuesday, November 6 divulged that the Ksh600 million was in form of assets, while Ksh12.5 million was in solid cash.

    Stephen Mwangi who served in the lands sector in City Hall since 1985 also revealed that he has a surveying firm worth hundreds of millions. “The wealth I have accumulated is as a result of many years of hard work, my employees and my family run the business so I can confirm there is no conflict of interest between my work and personal business,” Mwangi informed the committee.
