Renowned Kenyan politician, MP Babu Owino alleged that Nairobi County Governor Sakaja was denied entry to the United States because of alleged corruption.
After Babu Owino criticized Sakaja for his lackluster first year in office, the two engaged in a heated online debate on X (previously known as Twitter).
Babu Owino stated that Sakaja utilized county funds to purchase real estate in Europe and the Middle East.
The people of Nairobi should be ashamed of Sakaja.The bottom spot out of 48 counties is unfathomable.Homes in the United States, London, and Dubai (http://Dubai) are on Kazi ni Kuiba pesa’s shopping list for Nairobi County.He is also raising taxes on the people of Nairobi.
Now even the dead must pay taxes.You can call me Dimples in Nairobi.His message read, “Imekataa kuwork.”
Retweeting a post by lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi, the Embakasi East lawmaker implied that he agrees with Abdullahi’s suspicions. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the Global Magnitsky Act of 2016 have been secretly used by the Biden administration to impose penalties on a number of current and former Kenyan officials.
He later claimed that the Nairobi County Governor was the subject of a newspaper article about a governor who was denied a US visa.
Because of corruption, the US Embassy refused to issue a visa to @SakajaJohnson. pic.twitter.com/H3CR6Xw0hs
