Nairobi governor Mike Sonko plans to clamp dozens of national government buildings in a renewed crackdown on public and private land rate defaulters beginning next week.

National Treasury, which owes the County Sh88 million in interest and penalties, is among entities targeted by Sonko’s administration.

 Chief Officer in charge of Urban Planning and Housing Washington Mak’Odingo said the last time the National Treasury paid their land rates was in 2009. 

“The principal amount is Sh12 million, they have not paid for the last 10 years and we have now resolved to clamp their offices beginning next week. They must pay. We cannot have a selective tax enforcement system,” he said.
